Red Cross Fundraising Month Coming To An End

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Sacramento-Sierra chapter of the American Red Cross will bring the curtain down on its annual fundraising month with a two hour remote broadcast on the three Clarke Broadcasting stations.

Mother Lode District Manager Carole Mutzner is hopeful of raising $30,000 by the end of the month to meet local needs for the coming year. Mutzner adds that while the Red Cross has been commissioned by Congress to serve as a first responder, it receives no funding from the federal government.

Mother Lode residents are encouraged to stop by the local office at 13669 Mono Way and make a donation. The majority of funds raised are utilized to house and care for individuals who are victims of local disasters such as residential fires and flooding.

“Big Joe” Marshall from Today´s Country KKBN and Justin Flores of STAR 92.7 will host the two hour remote (4-6pm) to celebrate the Red Cross March fundraiser.
