A Los Angeles County supervisor on Tuesday urged residents and county employees to contribute to American Red Cross funds providing earthquake relief in Japan.
“On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the people of Japan for their profound loss and suffering from the enormous destruction that has occurred as a result of this devastating earthquake and tsunami,” Supervisor Don Knabe said.
Knabe urged those interested in helping victims to donate to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsuanami Fund, which will provide both immediate relief and long-term support for the island nation through supplies and technical assistance.
Contributions can be made at www.redcross.org, by calling (800) RED-CROSS, or 733-2767. Donations can be mailed to American Red Cross National Headquarters, 2025 E St. NW, Washington, D.C., 20006.
