The last week in September, members of the Texas State American Red Cross Club, led by president Victoria Arevalo, honored our community’s bravest by bringing homemade gift baskets to local firefighters. Visiting several fire stations, the members of the Texas State spent the afternoon learning about safety and preparedness while sharing the candies and treats they brought to the firefighters. This is an annual event the Texas State Red Cross club holds to recognize the outstanding efforts of firefighters in Hays County during September’s National Preparedness Month.
Strong relationships with fire departments are essential to the mission of the American Red Cross, as we work with emergency responders to meet the immediate needs of individuals affected by disasters like housefires as often as every other day.
