March is Red Cross month. You can help support our local Red Cross chapter by eating at Little Shebas (click to see their menu) on Tuesday, March 15th. They will donate 10% of the sales for the entire day to the Red Cross.
According to the Wayne/Union Red Cross site, “Every day, emergencies happen. Your Wayne/Union County Chapter of the American Red Cross is staffed with caring professionals who are dedicated to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.”
The Red Cross is an international organization with local chapters all over America as well as other countries including Japan. The American Red Cross is working with the Japanese Red Cross to help in any way that they can with the 8.9 magnitude earthquake devastation which occurred last week.
Monies raised for the event locally will remain in the local Red Cross chapter for Wayne and Union Counties. However if you would also like to give to the relief fund for the earthquake in Japan you can go to the site for the American Red Cross which has a secured donation program.
Hope to see you at Sheba’s tomorrow for lunch or dinner. Little Sheba’s is a locally owned and operated business making a difference in our community.
