Heart Sunday On March first, the annual fund drive of the McHenry County Chapter of the American Red Cross will begin. Do you know why it is important to keep this county chapter rimning? Emergency—If a tornado or storm were to devastate Huntley, food, clothing, and shelter would be immediately provided for our town whether or not we had given any support to tho Red Cross. Last year, for example, five million dollars was given to 18,000 fami¬ lies in distress during and after the destruction caused by Hurri¬ cane Carla, which drove one half million families from their homes. 300,000 families were given shel¬ ter during the storm .Most of the five million dollars went to repair¬ ing homes, according to the need of each family, not how much they lost. Plans and equipment are ready now in case Huntley or any other place in the world is in need of help in time of disaster. Fire In case of fire and injury we depend on the firemen for First Aid. This training, thev received free from the local Red Cross Chapter. Also, many citizens have taken these courses for their own safety at home. School bus drivers are also trained by the Red Cross in case of a bus accident. At big hotel and apartment house fires in the cities, Red Cross is there with shelter, food, and clothing. Veterans—The VA hospitals are full of wounded veterans, many of whom have been forgotten. At Christmas, just for Mie example, 15,000 cookies were made by vol¬ unteers for a Christmas party at Downey Hospital. • 'Home Nursng—Many peot^ who can't afford hospital costs, are taught to care for their sick family members at home, and some who have no one to care for them, arc visited bj- Red Cross nurses. Servicemen—38 cents of every dollar collected by the Red Cross goes to servicemen in one way or another,—most commonly, in ar¬ ranging for emergency; and often, when emergency arises, prnvirting for transporation h<Hne and back. Also, wives and children of service¬ men can always rely on the Red Cross for help when a need arises. There are young families who have no parents or relatives to turn to in time of need. ;Water Safety—How many chil¬ dren and parents in Huntley have l)een taught to swim by instructors trained by the Red Cross? Who else has so promoted water safe¬ ty? with the increasing popularity of lx)ating, isn't this an important Continued on Pag« 2 F.F.A.
