University Of Phoenix And American Red Cross Partner To Support Military Families And Disaster Victims

As members of the Annual Disaster Giving Program, University of Phoenix will fund disaster preparedness and relief in advance of major disasters allowing the Red Cross to pre-position resources and be ready to respond immediately. When a disaster strikes, trained relief workers are quickly deployed along with supplies and equipment to provide shelters, meals and material and emotional support when it's needed most.

The University has also joined the Red Cross in supporting the Holiday Mail for Heroes program on several of its campuses. Holiday Mail for Heroes is an effort to collect and distribute holiday cards to members of the armed forces, veterans and military families. University campuses joined with local Red Cross chapters to host public card signing events during November, where thousands of cards were signed at more than 40 locations.

Last year alone, the Red Cross provided 386,000 emergency services to America's military families and resources and care to the victims of nearly 200 disasters each day in the U.S., ranging from home fires to hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes and accidents.

About the American Red Cross:

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
