As we celebrate Veterans Day, the American Red Cross recognizes those who have served our country and offers support to them at every step – from the time a service member takes the oath, through active duty, to their transition to becoming a veteran.

While many parades, events, and celebrations have been canceled because of COVID-19, we are taking time to recognize those in Red Cross and their families that served our country in the Armed Forces with a virtual salute. There are many that are not included here. If you know of a Veteran take time to thank them for their service.

#AZNMRedcross wants everyone to stay safe as you start decorating their homes during this upcoming holiday season!

Decorations like trees, lights, and candles increase the risk of home fires during this festive time.

If using a ladder, be extra careful. Make sure to have good, stable placement, and wear shoes that allow for good traction. Use wooden or fiberglass ladders when putting up electrical decor and lights outside as metal ladders conduct electricity. #holiday2020 #endhomefires

End Home Fires
Home fires remain an enormous threat to our community. Here at the Red Cross, we respond to disasters every 8 minutes and the majority of those are home fires. This #November with the holidays around the corner test your smoke alarms.

Daylight saving time ends at 2 am tomorrow, and the American Red Cross of New Mexico urges everyone to test their smoke alarms when turning back their clocks.

As the fall season ushers in colder weather, it also increases the risk of deadly home fires. That’s because heating equipment is the second most common cause of fatalities from home fires—which, on average, takes seven lives every day in the U.S. #endhomefires

It all started with a dream...
After having to return home from school due to the pandemic, Rachel Stumbo couldn’t stop thinking about all that had been going on in the world.
She had a dream one night about a bracelet. So she called up her partner Jared Lucero, with the idea of creating a bracelet that would symbolize unity and bring people together, and they created Younited Threads.
Rachel and Jared created their business and have donated their proceeds to the Red Cross in New Mexico.
We’d like to thank Rachel and Jared for being philanthropic and believing in our mission!

Kathy Segura-Salas, Executive Director said, “We are extremely excited to be partnering with these young entrepreneurs!”

***Thankful Thursday***

Our volunteers are the true heart and soul of the #RedCross.
This “Thankful Thursday", we express our gratitude for his generous time and talent that directly help people in need. Today, we recognize Steve Irwin. 👏

“Retired from Target I became full-time RV'er. My wife and I ended up in Lake Havasu, Arizona, said, Steve. "I quickly became very bored. I had worked previously with the Red Cross while with Target and thought my skills could make a difference in my community, so I joined the Red Cross as a volunteer. Kathy tells family and friends I took a volunteer role and turned it into a full-time job.” “Mission accomplished, "Not Bored Now."

Retired as a Sr. Director Non-Retail Procurement for Target Corporation, Steve has been a #RedCross volunteer since 2017 in multiple roles, as a Blood Donor Ambassador in Mohave County coordinating blood drives in the local community and a Community Volunteer Leader (CVL), for Central and Northern Arizona, including a position as Covid-19 Shelter Manager. Volunteering for nine deployments it’s people like Steve who selflessly enable the mission of the #RedCross. In the spirit of ", One Red Cross" Steve along with the Mohave County DAT Team recently responded to a motel fire in Needles, CA, and assisted 24 clients. Thank you, Steve, and Kathy for #givingback.

New Mexico blasted by snow, wind, and freezing temperatures!

Blowing snow and slick roads are creating hazardous travel for northern and central New Mexico. National Weather Service in Albuquerque said the storm system is expected to reach peak intensity today with widespread winter-like effects, especially in the high terrain and across eastern New Mexico.

As temperatures drop, the American Red Cross offers steps people can follow to get you through winter storms.

Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) Volunteers and Red Cross Staff were busy at the Albuquerque New Mexico Chapter assembling 500 comfort kits. These kits will be delivered to the Raymond G Murphy VA Medical Center in Albuquerque and will be given out to veteran patients in need. The personal hygiene items were purchased through the Hospital Outreach Program funds and the process took three days to complete to ensure the safety of all participating. Pictured are Red Cross Board Member Ruben Griego, Operations Specialist, Robert Chavez, and volunteers Donna Lyton, Monique Robinson, Monique’s mother Melissa, and Brianna Hrabina. Not pictured Kathy Segura-Salas and John Gravel.

In addition to these items, the NM Chapter also supports the VA Hospital with clothing, items for both the gardening therapy program and art therapy program, and now supplies 100 masks per month for continued support throughout the year. Despite being unable to assist Veteran patients in person because of Covid-19 restrictions, the Red Cross continues to assist in not only traditional ways but now has included supplemental support until volunteers can return to in-person assistance.

Congratulations to our newest Regional Philanthropy Officer Jaclyn Parker. Ms. Parker will be based in Phoenix, Az cultivating relationships with new and existing donors to further the mission of the Red Cross in Arizona and New Mexico.

“Jaclyn has worked in the fundraising world for over twenty-three years with an unwavering commitment to the communities she served. We are thrilled to welcome Jaclyn to our team and I'm confident that she will thrive as she brings together donors who share the same passion for humanitarian service,” said Regional Chief Development Officer Shannon Albert.

“I started my career working for a large tele-fundraising company located in Arizona from 1997-2016 where I had the privilege of experiencing both the Operations and Client Services side of the business. In my early days, I personally raised the monetary funds for over 100 statewide and nationwide non-profits. In my last 8 years with the company, I was an Account Manager and Account Director, managing and overseeing fundraising accounts for large non-profits, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, The Salvation Army, Feeding America, and the ASPCA, I relocated to Denver in 2018 to be with my significant other and joined the Red Cross as a Donor Development Officer.

“I come from a large family who all still reside in Phoenix. I also have one married son, and they just had their first child last year so I’m a grandma! On the weekends, you can find us either at the racetrack as we love all things racing or hanging out with our new French Bulldog puppy, Byrdie.”

We're excited to have you as part of our team!
