Ross Family Seeks Refuge in Chicago

Fleeing in the wake of Gustav, the Ross family sought help from the Greater Chicago Red Cross. Willie, Maria and their two sons found a place to stay, volunteers to care for them and maybe even a place to start over. They're also Hurricane Katrina survivors! Read their story here.

More hurricanes are on their way, and our Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund is critically low. We rely on the generosity of the American people to give during times of disaster, and it seems like more and more people are going to need help from the Red Cross during this hurricane season.
