Better to donate to Stanislaus chapter of Red Cross

November 6, 2012 

I have a better idea — donate to the local Red Cross so we can help the people in our own back yards. Donate directly to The American Red Cross — Stanislaus Chapter, 1230 Sixth St., Modesto 95354. One hundred percent of your donation will go to the local chapter. They would appreciate it more than you will know. You never know when you might be the next person that needs them.

All donations that go through www.redcross.org pay for bloated salaries, etc. Of one dollar that is donated to our local Red Cross through the www.redcross.org, only a few cents might actually find its way to Modesto.
