Individual pledges totaled $71,517. The Dart Foundation pledged $50,000 and Sparrow Health Systems promised to match donations up to $100,000. A promise that John H. Cauley of the local Red Cross says to motivated others to donate generously.
The grand total reached $221,517, but donations are still coming in. The Red Cross is very appreciative of all the support they've received. They say the need in Southeast Asia will continue to grow as will the need here in Mid-Michigan. They depend on the generosity of the community.
You can still donate by calling 1-800-HELP- NOW.
