The Association president, Todd D. Miller, a social studies teacher at Honesdale High School, delivered a check for $1,240 to Linda Barney of the Wayne-Pike Chapter of the American Red Cross for use in Wayne County as needs arise.
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors, as everyone saw in New York and New Jersey during Superstorm Sandy. The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need, and will be when needed here locally.
The Red Cross aspires to turn compassion into action so that all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope.
The Red Cross prepares the community for disasters, makes sure that everyone in the country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products, and assists members of the Armed Forces and their families in finding support and comfort when needed. And in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.
The Wayne Highlands Education Association salutes the excellent work done throughout the year by the local chapter of the American Red Cross, and proudly supports their endeavors.
