Three cheers letter: Red Cross thanks Tierra Buena Temple, donors
Thank you, Tierra Buena Sikh Temple and donors.
For the fifth year, the American Red Cross of Northeastern California was invited by the Tierra Buena Sikh Temple to join them during their three-day event and parade.
Students from River Valley High School Red Cross Club and Red Cross volunteers walked the temple grounds and the parade. By the end of the three days, they collected $14,887.24.
The generous donations of the members of the temple and parade participants continue to demonstrate their love and caring for our local families who are displaced from their homes due to a disaster. This year, their giving is also being shared with the families affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The donated dollars will purchase blankets, personal hygiene items, emergency food, shelter and cleaning supplies.
Thank you, Sikh Temple Board members for allowing us to join in on such an important occasion. We are humbled and so very grateful to each of you and to the people who put money in our Red Cross buckets.
CEO, American Red Cross of Northeastern California
