American Red Cross + Master Lock are a Winning Combo

Thanks to Masterlock for sponsoring this discussion.



When people hear about American Red Cross, and the work that they do, they generally think of huge, mega disasters. I have witnessed this first hand, like the time there was a wild fire that tore through the National Park where we lived. Or living in SW MO, we witnessed the huge E-5 tornado that devastated Joplin, MO. While the American Red Cross is often first on the scene in these types of natural disasters, that’s not where they do their best work.


Nope. It’s the day in and day out crises of a community that is really where the American Red Cross shines. When there’s a house fire, the American Red Cross finds shelter for the family. They help them get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.

If you’re looking to learn CPR or become certified in first aid where do you turn? Yep, the very same American Red Cross. It’s not always about chasing the big headlines. A lot of times, it’s simply being where the need is.
