The American Red Cross has received a heavy volume of publicity recently due to its presence on the scene of numerous international crises, but Chad Roffers has been a generous contributor to the non-profit disaster relief organization for a number of years.
The American Red Cross began its non-partisan humanitarian efforts shortly after the conclusion of the Civil War, and over time has grown into the remarkable humanitarian relief operation that it is today. The American Red Cross estimates that it responds to over 70,000 U.S. disaster situations annually, whether natural or man-made, providing food, shelter, and direct financial assistance to millions of people impacted by emergencies. For example, since the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Red Cross has been present in areas affected by the storm, from Rhode Island to Virginia, and especially in the Greater New York and New Jersey areas. It’s estimated that approximately 61,000 individuals have sought overnight stays in over 250 Red Cross shelters, that 3.2 million meals have been served so far, and that more than 121.000 hygiene and clean-up items have been distributed to the area’s residents. As a charitable organization, the American Red Cross is largely dependent upon individual donors such as Chad Roffers to continue its humanitarian efforts, both in America and abroad.
