Happy Winter Solstice


Today marks the first official day of winter, the shortest day and longest night of the year.

Whether you like snow or not, there’s a lot of it in the forecast – Red Cross chapters in California and other states are preparing for severe weather. Volunteers across the country are ready to help deliver Red Cross services in case any flooding or storm-related relief is needed.

Wherever you are, be sure to check the weather report, listen to local authorities, and ready your own emergency supplies.
