Thanksgiving Greetings From The Red Cross

Jose Dominguez

During this season of gratitude, I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to all our neighbors who make helping others a priority in their lives.

Whether responding to the devastation caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida, offering relief after the destructive home fires that occur nearly every day in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, or supporting others who need extra aid during COVID-19, our neighbors raise their hands to help in countless ways.

Daily, I am humbled by our Red Cross volunteers who share their time to help the most vulnerable prepare for and recover from life-changing disasters in their communities. And when needed, these selfless individuals put their lives on hold for weeks at a time to lend a hand far from home after relentless hurricanes in the Gulf and historic wildfires out West.

I am also grateful for our partners who share a common purpose and community spirit to connect more individuals with critical humanitarian support. And our financial supporters allow the Red Cross to deliver emergency relief 24/7, 365 days a year.

A final word of thanks to our first responders—police, fire, and EMS—who we are proud to support as they protect and assist our communities every day.

Wishing you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Let’s continue to look out for one another.


—Jose Dominguez CEO, American Red Cross on Long Island
