Every 80 seconds a life is changed. A family loses everything they own, everything they love. With the help of American Red Cross volunteers and donors, the Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross is able to provide food, shelter and assistance during the darkest hours.
Last year alone, the Cincinnati Region responded to over 600 disasters and most of them where home fires.
The Greater Chicago Red Cross has come up with the most unique way of showing just how much damage can be done within a matter of moments.
When a family survives a fire without deaths or injuries, they usually first think of their pictures – the memories that can’t be replaced. One of my most striking memories as a disaster volunteer was helping this family wipe away smoke damage from baby photos that we were relieved to find intact.
