Red Cross of Alaska - Mat Su Vehicle Fundraiser

Create a page

Thank you for your support!

The Red Cross of Alaska Board of Directors has set a goal of raising $45,000 to support a new Chevy Silverado in the Mat-Su Borough. The borough is the fastest growing in the state, and this Red Cross vehicle will allow us to serve both urban and rural communities in an area that is larger than the country of Ireland. From Cantwell to the Copper River basin, from Thompson Pass to the fringes of Denali State Park, our disaster team will be able to reach those in need across very challenging terrain.

More than ever, the Red Cross is called upon to help Alaskans recover from home fires, flooding, windstorms, and wildfires. We are dedicated to preventing and alleviating suffering in the Mat-Su Borough and beyond. Please help the Red Cross continue to prepare for, respond to, and help families recover from disasters with a donation today. 

“This new vehicle means we can bring our mission to places we might not otherwise be able to go. Reaching Alaskans in these more remote areas is crucial to provided help to those in need.” – Bill Morrow, Disaster Program Manager, Mat Su Territory

Last year in the Mat Su Borough, the Red Cross responded to 49 disasters including home fires and flooding, taught disaster preparedness classes to 1,764 students, and installed 250 free smoke alarms. Help support this amazing work with a donation towards the new Mat Su vehicle today!

Thank you,
American Red Cross of Alaska Board of Directors
