Hanapin Marketing and The American Red Cross

Mark Casey | |

There’s a lot going on here at Hanapin Marketing. Sometimes amidst all the hustle and bussle of account management and PPChero.com, it’s easy to lose time to highlight what it is that Hanapin is doing to make a difference in people’s lives – beyond the realms of Pay Per Click. That is why we would like to take a moment to talk a little bit more about one of the charities we support.

Since 1917, the Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross has provided disaster relief, services to Armed Forces, emergency preparedness and lifesaving programs to Bloomington and the surrounding communities. Today we serve residents in both Monroe and neighboring Owen County 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

Each year they train over 7,000 people in life-saving skills and respond to 30- 40 disasters. In emergencies large and small – house fires, earthquakes, floods – right here in our community or on distant shores, people can count on the Red Cross. Your generous donations of time, money and blood make our services possible. Thank you for your support.

Governed by volunteers and supported by community donations, the American Red Cross is a nationwide network of over 600 chapters and Blood Services regions dedicated to saving lives and helping people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. Led by a million volunteers and 30,000 employees, the Red Cross annually mobilizes relief to families affected by more than 75,000 disasters, trains almost 12 million people in lifesaving skills, and exchanges more than a million emergency messages for U.S. military service personnel and their families. The Red Cross is the largest supplier of blood and blood products to more than 3,000 hospitals across the nation and also assists victims of international disasters and conflicts at locations worldwide.”
