Also each time the hashtag #Help1Family is used throughout today and Thursday Craig Newark, the founder of Craigslist will donate $1 to the American Red Cross. We help someone who has probably lost someone in a fire. When fires and other natural disasters strike, the American Red Cross is there to help, but there a few steps you can take to help prepare for those situations.

Every year, the Red Cross responds to almost 64,000 disasters. A gift to our one-day awareness effort can provide urgent relief like a day's worth of food, plus blankets and other essentials.

"We are very saddened by the loss of lives from the March fire and for all community members who were effected", said Lisa La Sala, Executive Director of the American Red Cross of Northwest Illinois.

From severe weather and fires to earthquakes and busted pipes, disasters, while of varying degree, can leave families displaced for indefinite periods of time. A $10 donation to the Red Cross can be made by texting REDCROSS to 90999. All donations will be processed on April 26, 2017. Inside the envelope are important contact information, tips on post-fire cleanup, advice on handling damaged items and more.

The American Red Cross provides programs and services to a population of 8.8 million in New Jersey. The Red Cross trains and mobilizes more than 5,300 volunteers who support the delivery of services throughout the state.

The Red Cross depends on donations to help people affected by disasters.

"We're hoping to do more (installation events)", Nelson said. We partner with our customers to give shape to ideas and work to bring value to our society.
