Hats Off to the American Red Cross Event!

“Hats Off” to the American Red Cross

The Hawaii State Chapter of the American Red Cross is holding its annual Hats Off event on April 1-3, 2011.  Off duty firefighters, military, Lions Clubs, and other volunteers will take their hats off as a salute to the American Red Cross and ask the public to fill their hats with donations.  Donations may also be made online at Gifts support the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross in your community, across the country and around the world.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, volunteers will collect donations at Walmart stores. On Saturday, April 2, volunteers will be at 6 locations on Oahu.

“In Hawaii, we respond to about 100 disasters every year (one every 3-4 days) providing emergency assistance and emotional support to victims of every day disasters like house fires and floods,” said Coralie Chun Matayoshi, CEO Hawaii State Chapter.  “We are not a government agency and rely on donations from the people of Hawaii to provide these critical services to our community.  In addition to responding to disaster victims with caring and compassion, we help prepare families and businesses for disasters, teach lifesaving skills to 33,000 people a year, and provide emergency communications for military service members and their families.”

The Red Cross is a non-profit humanitarian organization which provides assistance for immediate emergency needs.  All Red Cross assistance to disaster victims is free. The Red Cross is not a government agency but depends on public contributions to help others. To help the Red Cross and its lifesaving mission, send a contribution to: American Red Cross, Hawaii State Chapter, 4155 Diamond Head Road. Honolulu, HI 96816. Make a secure online donation at or call: (808) 739-8109.

In celebration of Red Cross Month, a time to recognize the critical importance of the Red Cross in our community, volunteers will take their hats off as a salute to the Red Cross and ask the public to show their support through generous donations.

What: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Each year off duty fire fighters, civil defense, military, businesses, clubs, students and individuals volunteer collect donations from motorists. Volunteers are loaned a red safety vest and a collection hard hat.

Who: Gifts supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross in the community, across the country and around the world.

All volunteers will receive lunch, drinks and a cap.

Together, we can help the people of Hawaii during times of emergencies.
