TeamWRX Savannah’s Impactful Day at the American Red Cross

At TeamWRX, we believe in giving back to the community and fostering connections that make a difference. In May, as part of our Community Connections initiative, our Savannah team took a day to volunteer at the American Red Cross of Southeast Georgia. Our team dedicated their efforts to reorganizing and updating the emergency response kits, ensuring they are ready to provide immediate support during natural or man-made disasters.

The Mission of the American Red Cross of Southeast Georgia

The American Red Cross of Southeast Georgia, established on March 17, 1917, has been serving the community for over a century. This organization plays a vital role in disaster preparedness and response, covering 18 counties, including Appling, Brantley, Bryan, and Bulloch. Whether it’s providing onsite assistance during a disaster or offering emotional support and clean-up kits afterward, the Red Cross is there to help those in need.

TeamWRX Savannah Steps Up

Our Savannah team, driven by a commitment to community service, volunteered their time to ensure that the American Red Cross’s emergency response kits were in top shape. These kits are crucial for disaster response, containing necessary items such as flashlights, caution tape, pens, markers, and various office supplies. Additionally, the administrative kits included numerous checklists and documents for families to complete during emergencies.

The reorganization process involved checking and updating documents, ensuring that all supplies were present and in working order, and replacing any outdated items. By doing so, we helped enhance the Red Cross’s readiness to respond swiftly and effectively in times of crisis.

A Century of Service: The American Red Cross’s Impact

For over 100 years, the American Red Cross of Southeast Georgia has been a beacon of hope and support. The organization provides a wide range of services to serve counties such as Camden, Chatham, Effingham, and Glynn. These include disaster relief, emergency messaging for military families, and educational programs that teach lifesaving skills.

The Red Cross’s ability to mobilize quickly and efficiently during disasters is partly due to the dedicated volunteers who make up 97 percent of their workforce. These volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and serve in various roles, from Board members and instructors to disaster action team members and office administrators.
