PRESS ALERT
Red Cross to Receive 500 "Snoopy" Dolls From MetLife Auto & Home to be Distributed to Local Children Who are Victims of Fire

    WHO: MetLife Auto & Home & American Red Cross of Rhode Island

    WHAT: MetLife Auto & Home to donate 500 "Snoopy" dolls to Rhode Island Red Cross, to be distributed to local children who are victims of house fires.

    WHEN: Thursday, March 28, 2002 at 9am

    WHERE: MetLife Auto & Home, Jesse Dawley Road (middle MetLife entrance, off Quaker Lane), Warwick, Rhode Island

    WHY: The American Red Cross of Rhode Island has, in previous years, received a donation of stuffed animals through a national agreement with major retailers. This year, that program was not continued, and the Rhode Island Red Cross found itself without stuffed animals to distribute to young children who lose their toys in a house fire.

This year, the American Red Cross has responded to 37 fires across the state. In 2001, the American Red Cross of Rhode Island assisted 379 Rhode Island families, who were victims of fires, spending over $200,000.00 in emergency services. All Red Cross assistance is free. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on private donations to provide emergency assistance to Rhode Islanders in crisis.
