A note of thanks to the Red Cross

Statement from Alderman Bob Donovan - January 3, 2018

By - Jan 3rd, 2018 04:18 pm

I want to publicly thank the Red Cross for rescinding its decision to not respond with volunteers on-site to house fires in certain Milwaukee ZIP codes. Its announcement today that it will be going back to its full response policy reiterates my firm belief that the Red Cross hasn’t lost its way and remains committed to providing the same compassion, care and understanding it always has.

I have seen firsthand the support, assistance and comfort the Red Cross has provided Milwaukee families hit the hardest by tragedy and loss. Their work is outstanding and I am pleased it will continue at full strength across our great city.

With today’s announcement – and at the request of the Red Cross – I have pulled the scheduled Public Safety and Health Committee file that had been scheduled for Friday’s meeting at City Hall.
