Hoquiam Fire Displaces Family of Four

When disaster strikes our community, the local Red Cross is your conduit of compassion – the most direct link between people who want to help and people who need help in an emergency. You can help this family and hundreds of others affected by local disasters by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter. The most common disaster the local Red Cross chapter responds to is a house or apartment fire.

Financial contributions enable the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to local disaster victims in need. All Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the local community.

Donations can be made by calling (360) 249-2349 or by mail to the:

American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter
Grays Harbor County Office
21 Clemons Road North
Montesano, WA 98563

The Red Cross is not a government agency. Therefore, donations to the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter are even more critical to supporting local Red Cross programs and services in our community. The local Red Cross disaster relief and emergency services budget is dependant upon the contributions made by community members – individual donors, businesses, and foundations.

American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter is dedicated to helping local families and making our community safer. A volunteer-led humanitarian organization, the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter is touching lives in our community every day. The Red Cross assists a family affected by a disaster almost every 48 hours in our community. Last year, your American Red Cross trained over 27,000 people in vital lifesaving skills, and provided over 4,545 local military families and service members with emergency communications, access to counseling, and community referrals.
