Right at Home Launches Fundraising Campaign for the American Red Cross

Campaign aimed at helping to keep communities and seniors safe during the COVID-19 pandemic benefits the American Red Cross efforts.

Right at Home, a leading international in-home care provider, has been caring for seniors, wherever they call home, for 25 years. Their mission, to improve the quality of life for those they serve, is evident in the 50,000-plus seniors they care for each year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, seniors need everyone’s help because older adults are some of the most adversely affected by the coronavirus. Right at Home caregivers are working harder than ever to help keep seniors safe and healthy, but they need your assistance.

Right at Home created T-shirts with the slogan, “Because Someone I Love Is a Senior.” The shirts are a symbol that we can all do the inconvenient things, such as social distancing, hand-washing, and sheltering in place, to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

For each shirt sold through May 31, 2020, Right at Home will donate $5 to the American Red Cross COVID-19 response. “We recognize that life-saving blood transfusions don’t stop during a crisis, and as we head into severe weather season, the Red Cross disaster relief program is ready to provide assistance to those who will be affected by hurricanes, tornadoes and related events,” said Margaret Haynes, Chief Operating Officer. “We are committed to helping the Red Cross maintain its blood bank supplies and supporting its disaster relief program so they can serve those in need.”
