Tom Howland becomes an active member of the American Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT). DAT is the first on-the-scene Red Cross contact at the site of a disaster. Tom’s experience with different charitable organizations has given him a great perspective on the value of giving his time and support in addition to making charitable donations.

“I realize more than ever now how important it is to be prepared for the unexpected things in life.  We can plan all we want, but let’s face it: a lot of events happen in life that are not planned.  The American Red Cross knows this better than any organization I have come across. Quick reactions to mobilize shelters in disaster areas immediately following floods, fires, natural disasters, and more takes plenty of help, resources, and support to help those in need.”

Please join us in supporting the American Red Cross by making a direct donation
