A little help from our friends

We couldn’t respond to disasters as effectively and efficiently as we do without the help of our friends – partners like Area Office on Aging, United Way, Columbia Gas, and Toledo Edison. There are countless others who have stepped forward during the past week to provide donations of water, money, and volunteers to pass out water to the most vulnerable in our community. Just check out the numbers below to see how much we were able to do in such a short amount of time: Infographic NWO_SEMICH water cropped Today, we’d like to thank a long time supporter and partner – FirstEnergy Foundationa and Toledo Edison. Their generous donation of $5,000 to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief allows us to respond at a moments notice when our community needs us most.

“In times of crisis, we rely more than ever on the American Red Cross,” said Linda Moss, regional president of Toledo Edison. “We’re proud to be part of this community, where our employees live and work and raise their families, and we’re pleased to be able to support our neighbors when the unexpected happens.”

In addition to supporting our disaster relief efforts this month, Toledo Edison works hand-in-hand with us during other weather-related disasters, and has been a long time supporter of our annual Oscar Night fundraising gala. Thank you Toledo Edison!
