North Texas Annual Report 2014



North Texas Annual Report 2014
Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Network
A Message From the CEO
2014 was a year of both great challenge and great accomplishment as we worked together to shape the future of
Red Cross operations in the North Texas Region. While we span a wide swath of territory, around 121,000 square
miles, our size hasn’t stopped us from helping people from the Texas Panhandle to Texarkana. Throughout this Annual
Report, you’ll learn a great deal about what we do, including how we respond to emergencies, support America’s
military families, teach lifesaving skills and offer assistance around the world. It’s an incredible mission and one that
I’m proud we accomplish together.
While last year was one we’re proud of, I’m really excited for the year ahead and I wanted to take just a moment to
share a few of the impactful campaigns that you’ll see us roll out:
Home Fire Campaign: The American Red Cross has undertaken a national initiative to reduce injuries and deaths
from home fires by 25% over the next five years. For the first time, our organization is united in implementing this
important initiative and you’ll see it happening in your local communities throughout the next few years. There are key
areas in our region that are ranked as some of the most dangerous in America so they’ll all receive a special focus.
Those areas include Amarillo, Arlington, Longview and Texarkana. On top of that, Red Cross volunteers will be fanned
out near and far with one mission in mind – to save lives through prevention and education.
Ready 365: Americans have come to expect the American Red Cross to be ready at a moment’s notice –365 days a
year. But we can’t do that alone so we’re reaching out to business leaders to join the movement. Through Ready 365,
a new premium membership program, your company stands with the Red Cross as we provide lifesaving services. As
our valued partner, you will join a select group of businesses and be spotlighted as a dedicated Red Cross donor.
Disaster Field Supply Center: Just a couple of months ago, we were honored to cut the ribbon on a new 174,000
square foot national disaster relief warehouse in Arlington, Texas. When the next major disaster impacts our country,
volunteers will head to the Center in Arlington to start moving cots, blankets, hygiene and cooking supplies, toys for
kids and many other items to the town/s that need them most. In the coming year, we’ll be hiring a new employee to
work from this Arlington location and we’ll expand our reach by offering CPR and First Aid training and blood.
All in 1 Day: June 2 will mark the first nationwide fundraising drive for the American Red Cross. We’ll be reaching
out to every community through every channel to encourage folks to give what they can on that day. The mission
of the Red Cross is critical 24/7/365 so this campagin will give us the chance to educate communities about our
role right where you live. We’ll need advocates to help us spread the word and we hope you’ll help. In the months
ahead, we’ll be reaching out to you with creative ideas on how you can help us raise funds and share our mission.
These are just a handful of the new efforts we’re going to undertake that will lead to even more lives saved. It’s an
honor to be a part of an organization that cares so deeply about the communities we serve. We are the sum of all
of our parts –volunteers, donors, partners and advocates. I thank you for the privilege I’ve been afforded to lead
one of the best regions in the nation.

You Make It Possible
The American Red Cross North Texas Region provides vital services to 121 counties
365 days a year–from helping families become safer from home fires to providing
emergency food, shlether and supplies to residents affected by floods or tornadoes.
We are able to provide these services thanks to a corps of 7,376 dedicated
volunteers and the generosity of our donors. The American Red Cross puts these
donations to good use–we are proud to tell donors that we spend an average of
91 cents of every dollar in humanitarian services and programs, well above the
industry standard.
How do we do it? By practicing what we preach: preparedness. We train our volunteers.
We plan ahead for the types of disasters that strike in our community. And we train
individuals, businesses and community groups so that they too can be prepared.
The American Red Cross North Texas Region serves communities from the Texas
Panhandle to Texarkana. In total, we work across 121 counties, covering more than half
of the state. In this report, which covers fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013–June 30, 2014),
you’ll learn about how we help our neighbors–down the street, across the country and
around the world.

Down the Street
We’re ready to respond to disaster 7 days a week, 365 days a year in our community,
providing shelter, food, clothing and emotional support at no cost to those in need.
The North Texas Region is part of a nationwide network of Red Cross regions that
work together to respond to large-scale relief efforts.
Home fires are the most common disaster to which the Red Cross responds. On
average, the North Texas Region helps around six families each day. Although these
fires don’t typically make the news as hurricanes or other large-scale events do, they
are devestating for those who have suddenly lost their homes, possessions and
sense of security.
In fiscal year 2014, the North Texas Region assisted 2,798 families affected by fires
and other local disasters.
The North Texas Region also teaches families, organizations and corporations how to
be prepared for emergencies through free educational presentations. Last year,
15,619 people attended community disaster education and preparedness programs
across the region.
In addition to serving families affected by
home fires, the Red Cross also supports
first responders on the scenes of local
disasters. A cup of coffee or a word of
thanks is the least we can do to serve
those who are always there to serve our
Every year, the North Texas Region teaches people the lifesaving skills they need to
protect themselves and their families, including first aid, CPR and water safety.
We offer these trainings in multiple ways: onlien training, traditional classroom
settings and full-service courses where we bring the training to your workplace or
Last year, 67,391 individuals learned critical skills through Red Cross courses:
25,185 people enrolled in first aid/CPR/AED
25,168 people enrolled in water safety/aquatics
17,038 people enrolled in other health and safety courses
North Texas Region
Texas has the second-largest veteran population in the nation with 1.7 million veterans.
The Texas counties with the highest numbers of veterans are Bell, Bexar, Collin, Dallas,
Denton, El Paso, Harris, Tarrant, Travis and Williamson.
Four of these counties are in the North Texas Region: Collin, Denton, Dallas and Tarrant.
According to a report by the Texas Workforce Investment Council (2012), 625,360
veterans reside in these four North Texas Region counties.
The Red Cross North Texas Region gives support to active-duty military members,
National Guard and Reserve members, veterans and their families. We provide
predeployment briefings, called “Get to Know Us Before You Need Us,” and connect
families with needed resources when their loved ones are deployed.
Deployed service members also count on us to deliver emergency messages, such as
notification of an illness or death in the family. Military families rely on these verified
communications, which help commanders decide when to grant leave. We also provide
support for the sick and wounded at military and veterans hospitals and assistance in
obtaining emergency financial support.

The Red Cross relies on the volunteer spirit and financial generosity of the American
people to support America’s military families. Today, as always, the men and women of
the American Red Cross continue to show our appreciation for the dedicated services
and patriotic sacrifices of America’s military men and women and their families by being
theere to support them wherever they are and whenever they need us.
Down the Street, Across the Country
The American Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters around the country
every year. While many of them can be supported by local disaster responders in
the affected area, sometimes there’s a need to call in more help. Often, volunteers
trained in specific functions are called upon to deploy where their expertise is
needed. In fiscal year 2014, nearly 600 North Texas staffers and volunteers
responded to 20 different disaster relief operations around the U.S., from
emergencies in their own backyard to states thousands of miles away. Here are
just some of the disasters North Texan Red Crossers responded to in FY14:
In September of 2013, what was described as a “once in 1,000 years” flood
event in Colorado killed eight people and forced thousands from their homes.
The American Red Cross relief operation included more than 1,300 disaster
responders, including 31 from North Texas.
In December of 2013, a massive winter storm hitting North Texas caused
widespread power outages in sub-freezing temperatures. The Red Cross
opened 11 shelters over a four-day period, providing residents with a
much-needed warm place to stay. The operation was staffed entirely by more
than 200 local disaster responders, working day and night.

damage in Evans, Colorado.
In April of 2014, a tornado outbreak hit much of the central and southern
United States, killing 35 people. More than 40 North Texas disaster workers
deployed to Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Kansas and northern Florida to
assist with relief efforts.
In May of 2014, a fast-moving wildfire spread through the Texas Panhandle
near the city of Fritch. More than 100 homes were destroyed and hundreds
were forced to evacuate. 140 trained Red Cross volunteers and staffers from
across North Texas deployed to help their neighbors to the west.
In addition to domestic disasters, the American Red Cross also supports our sister
Red Cross and Red Crescent societies when disaster strikes around the world. The
American Red Cross supported the Philippine Red Cross in their relief efforts after
Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded, destroyed or
damaged more than one million homes. The generous donations to the American
Red Cross during the response were used to purchase and distribute relief items
such as food, blankets, shelter, hygiene kits and mosquito nets, as well as funding
cash grants to 59,000 families affected by the typhoon. The North Texas Region
alone accounted for $1.6 million in donations to typhoon relief.

North Texas Region
Teeing Off, Rocking Out For Relief
Fiscal year 2014 was a great year for the North Texas Region, as our generous supporters and volunteers came out all
year to support our mission. Here are some of the highlights:
Superstorm Sandy Commemoration Forums
In the fall of 2013, the Red Cross marked the one-year anniversary
of Superstorm Sandy with commemoration forums across North Texas.
Nearly 200 Red Cross disaster responders from across North Texas
deployed to the east coast to assist in Sandy relief efforts. The forum
events were designed to celebrate their incredible work and acknowledge
those who supported the Red Cross during its largest U.S. response in five
years. Tom and Jeanne Gargiulo, a Long Island family directly impacted by
the storm, made the trip to Texas to tell their personal story about how the
Red Cross relief helped them on their road to recovery.
Swing For Relief 2013
Our 15th Annual Swing For Relief Golf Tournament was held on September
23, 2013. Golfers hit the links at Prestonwood Country Club in Dallas for
our longest-running fundraiser. The annual event raised more than
$350,000 for disaster relief.
YPA Wrapped in Red 2013
The Red Cross DFW Young Professionals Auxiliary (YPA) held their 2nd
Annual Wrapped in Red Holiday Gala on December 13, 2013 at the
Crescent Hotel. More than 100 supporters turned out to dance the night
away in support of disaster relief. The Red Cross YPA is made up of young
professional philanthropists giving their time and talents to directly impact
lives in the DFW Metroplex through volunteering, fundraising and raising
awareness for the Red Cross mission.
First Annual Red Cross B*A*S*H
This year, we brought a new event to Fort Worth to kick off March is Red
Cross Month: the Red Cross B*A*S*H. This military-themed event, with
food trucks, lives music and family fun, supported Service to the Armed
Forces programs. Mayor Betsy Price of Fort Worth was on hand to officially
proclaim March as Red Cross Month .
Southwest Airlines Heroes Award Presentation
As part of Red Cross Month, the Red Cross presented Southwest Airlines
with the 2014 North Texas Region Heroes Award for their longtime support
of the Red Cross mission. Red Cross National Board of Governors member
Jim Keyes and his wife Margo, along with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and
Red Cross North Texas Regional CEO T.D. Smyers, presented the award to
Southwest CEO Gary Kelly in a special reception on March 27, 2014.
Rock Out For Red Cross
We closed out Red Cross Month with a benefit concert from country
star Cory Morrow and special guest The Keith Mitchell Band, March
27, 2014 at Gilley’s in Dallas. Mayor Mike Rawlings of Dallas served
as the honorary event chair, with all event proceeds benefiting
disaster relief.
Statewide Disaster Drill
On June 7, 2014, chapters across the North Texas Region participated in a statewide disaster drill, designed to simulate a tornado
disaster. Volunteers practiced setting up and running a Red Cross
shelter, working with community partners and even monitoring and
responding to social media messages like the kind Red Cross digital
volunteers would see in a real-life emergency. Learnings from the
exercise helped volunteers become better prepared to respond to
future disasters.
North Texas Region
Introducing the North Texas
Digital Operations Center
On April 3, 2014, the American Red Cross North Texas Region
opened a new Digital Operations Center (DigiDOC) in its Dallas
chapter. The new social media command center, powered by Dell,
allows the Red Cross to monitor social conversations before and
during disasters to help anticipate needs and connect more people
with resources during an emergency. North Texas is the first region
to receive this innovative technology outside of our national
headquarters in Washington, D.C.
With the launch of the new center, the North Texas Region has
been working to build its digital volunteer program, comprised of
trained public affairs volunteers who engage with people on social
media platforms to provide critical safety tips, relief information and
emotional support during disasters, as well as important situational
awareness information from social media monitoring to the relief
operation. Since its launch, the North Texas Digital Operations
Center has provided digital support for regional and national relief
operations, including the April 2014 Arkansas tornado outbreak and
the Fritch, Texas wildfires.
Like our national DigiDOC, the North Texas
Digital Operations Center is powered and funded
entirely by our generous partners at Dell.
The opening of the Digital Operations Center in North Texas is the
result of the region’s long-standing strong reputation in the social
space. The North Texas Region was the first local chapter to use
digital volunteers to assist its communities online during local
emergencies. For more than two years, locally based digital
volunteers have provided preparedness and response information
during emergencies of all sizes, from severe weather outbreaks to
major area disasters like the West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion
and the tornado outbreak in Granbury and Cleburne in 2013.

Community Engagement at Dell, push the button

more than 2,000 veterans and family members, and we trained more than 300 dental and
medical assistants on military installations and in civilian communities.
For more than 100 years, the Red Cross has taught people the skills they need to prepare
and respond to emergencies, and these days, learning lifesaving skills couldn’t be easier.
Along with introducing new classes such as Advanced Child-Care Training, we continue to
develop new mobile apps to help people prepare for and respond to emergencies, as well
as make it easier for people to help others. In the past year, the Red Cross introduced four

training for entry-level health care careers. Over the past two years, 2,500 students across
the U.S. were able to enter the NAT program thanks to a $3.5 million grant from the
Walmart Foundation.
Providing Blood as We Adapt to Change
The American Red Cross is the nation’s single largest supplier of blood and blood
products, and every day, we help save lives and enable those with chronic conditions to
enjoy life to the fullest.
In recent years, overall demand for blood products has dropped as medical treatments
advance and fewer transfusions are necessary. The Red Cross strongly supports blood
management, which minimizes the need for transfusions by optimizing patient care before,
during and after surgery. At the same time, the Red Cross must adapt to this decline in
demand by ensuring our resources are focused on the right areas.
While the demand for blood has decreased, the need for donors and donations remains
a critical part of the lifesaving process. Many people are not eligible to give blood due to
travel, medication or a health condition. Of the approximately 38 percent of the population
who are eligible, only a fraction of those actually donate.
The Red Cross must collect approximately 15,000 units of blood each day to meet the
needs of accident victims, cancer patients, children with blood disorders and others. To
meet this need, our teams have renewed their focus on recruiting donors and blood drive
sponsors, planning and scheduling, and collecting blood and platelets. The Red Cross
has also been making changes to provide the best value in blood and blood products
to hospitals.
To help combat the typical decline in summer blood donations, in
May 2014 the Red Cross launched a campaign called “100 Days
of Summer. 100 Days of Hope.” to urge eligible donors to give
blood and platelets, reminding everyone that summer is a time
when they can give hope to those who are suffering by donating
blood. The campaign began Memorial Day weekend and ran until
September 1.
A safe and adequate blood supply is critical, as this
recipient attests.
North Texas Region
Around the World
Working with the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network, the American Red
Cross has helped meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable communities for
more than a century, and our work continued over the past year with disasters,
disease prevention and conflicts.
In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, damaging or destroying more
than 1 million homes. The American Red Cross immediately sent disaster response
specialists, relief supplies and financial assistance to the Philippines, working with
the Philippine Red Cross to deliver aid. The American Red Cross has led to the Red
Cross effort that provided cash grants, 59,000 families and is working with partners
on longterm recovery efforts. More than 1 million Filipinos have received lifesaving
Red Cross assistance since Haiyan struck.
Technology plays an important part in Red Cross relief operations and preparedness
efforts. Last year, the American Red Cross Global Geographic Information Systems
team provided remote mapping support for emergencies around the world, including
Typhoon Haiyan and the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. In addition, more than 2,700
volunteers made 11 million edits to maps on the OpenStreetMap platform, which
helped relief workers from the Red Cross and other partner agencies speed relief to
disaster survivors.
The popularity of the Red Cross First Aid App in the U.S. led the Global Disaster
Preparedness Center (GDPC), a resource center created by the American Red
Cross and the global Red Cross netework, to develop a platform for the easy
adaptation and localization of the First Aid app. This allows each local Red Cross
and Red Crescent society to create its own version of the app. As of June, 2014 the
apps have been released in more than 23 countries.
The Measles & Rubella Initiative, a partnership in the American Red Cross helped
establish, has vaccinated more than 1.1 billion children since 2001, and measles
deaths have declined by 78 percent. The initiative has also handed out more than 41
million bed nets to prevent malaria and provided 207 million doses of the polio
vaccine, ensuring children are protected against these devastating diseases.

The distinguished corporate members of the Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) enable the Red Cross to respond
immediately to the needs of individuals and families impacted by disaster anywhere in the United States, regardless of cost.
They do so by helping to build a reliable funding base for disaster relief services and truly our partners in disaster response.
Here are our local ADGP partners:
Disaster Responder Members
The American Red Cross relies on generous support from partners so that we can prepare for the unexpected and respond
immediately when an event occurs. By providing funding in advance to Disaster Relief, our Disaster Responder Members ensure
the Red Cross is able to sustain its mission and provide help to those affected by disaster.
Here are our local Disaster Responder Members:
Tiffany Circle Society of Women Leaders
The Tiffany Circle bring women philanthropists together in the work of
the American Red Cross. Through their personal investment of
$10,000 annually in their local Red Cross, Tiffany Circle members
follow in the footsteps of a long line of women leaders who have
helped the Red Cross serve the American public in times of need
with disaster assistance, blood collection, safety training and count
less community assistance services.
The name “Tiffany” and the $10,000 amount have historical
precedence. The society is named for the beautiful Tiffany windows in
the Board of Governors Hall at Red Cross national headquarters in
Washington, D.C. These windows, produced by the Tiffany Studios,
were commissioned by Red Cross President Mabel Boardman in 1917.
As an act of reconciliation and hope, they were paid for with a $5,000
gift from the Women's Relief Corps of the North and $5,000 from the
United Daughters of the Confederacy of the South.
The women in these windows personify virtues at work in the
Red Cross Movement: hope, mercy, faith, charity, truth and fortitude.
Members of the Tiffany Circle provide living examples of these virtues
in their local communities by ensuring the Red Cross has the ability to
help people prevent, prepare for and respond to life's emergencies.
Grateful thanks to this year’s local Tiffany Circle members:
