Give the Gift of Military Comfort Kits to Wounded Warriors
Purchase an American Red Cross military comfort kit and help ease the suffering of a wounded warrior this holiday season.
SUPPORT THOSE WHO SERVE For an injured service member, the journey from the battlefield to the hospital can be long and uncomfortable, and many make the journey without any personal items. You can make sure they are warmly welcomed at a military hospital with comfort kits filled with the most needed items such as a phone card, robe, shower shoes, toiletries and an MP3 music gift card.
Shoppers can purchase one military comfort kit for $50, or as many as 20 military comfort kits for $1,000. Purchase Red Cross Military Comfort Kits today.
A part of the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces mission is to care for ill and wounded service members and veterans. SAF volunteers are present at most military medical facilities, offering the patients DVDs, snacks, interactive game systems, clothes, personal items, books and more.
SAF also provides emergency communications to keep military personnel in touch with their families for significant life events such as the birth of a child or grandchild, serious illness or death of an immediate family member, or other emergency. In addition, Red Cross SAF provides critical support to members of the U.S. military including financial assistance, counseling and veteran assistance.
RED CROSS IN ACTION The past few months have been extremely busy for the Red Cross, with disaster response operations for Hurricane Isaac along the Gulf and Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast. In addition to these headline disasters, the Red Cross has also responded to home fires, floods, tornadoes and wildfires throughout the year.
Meanwhile, the Red Cross continued to provide emergency services to military members, collect and distribute lifesaving blood, and train people across the country in first aid and CPR, aquatics and water safety.
