Nearly every eight minutes, a family loses everything to a home fire or other disaster – the roof over their heads, their clothes and their most cherished possessions. During those first devastating hours and beyond, American Red Cross volunteers and staff stand ready to provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter and other essentials to people in their time of greatest need.

Boise Paper helps the Red Cross offset administrative costs by donating paper so that more funds are redirected to their critical humanitarian efforts. This support from Boise Paper helps ensure that the Red Cross is prepared and ready to immediately meet the needs of disaster survivors across the country, anytime and anywhere.

On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, the Red Cross will host its fourth annual Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising event uniting thousands of Red Cross supporters across the country to make a difference and #Help1Family in need following disasters. Here are a few simple ways that YOU can help make Giving Day a success:
