RED CROSS FEATURED IN AUSTIN CHRONICLE BEST OF 2008

The American Red Cross of Central Texas upped our “street cred” this week when we were featured in the Austin Chronicle’s Best of 2008 Critics Poll. The ARC of Central Texas was recognized, along with the Capital Area Food Bank, as the Critic’s Choice for Best Response in a Crisis for our work with evacuees from Hurricane Ike. The recognition is rightly attributed to volunteers for both organizations who tirelessly devote their time and energy to help those in need, while still maintaining their regular responsibilities to work and family.  Your continued efforts allow us to open our community in response to disasters such as Hurricane Ike in ways we could never manage without you.  We join the Chronicle in recognizing our volunteers and staff who make the American Red Cross of Central Texas work. Thank you!
From the Austin Chronicle:
Best Response in a Crisis: Central Texas Red Cross, Capital Area Food Bank
It’s not their job. That’s the first fact that everyone should remember when thinking about how the volunteers with these two charities stepped up to help the Hurricane Ike evacuees. It was the Red Cross that staffed shelters and the Capital Area Food Bank that handed out emergency supplies to those that had fled the coast. This award is not so much for the institutions but for the people that sacrificed their time and energy to help those in need – and will again.
