We feel it is only right to do what we can to keep you informed, as to the stewardship of your money. 1. 94 per cent of our budget is for the residents of Mower County. 2. Our payroll consists of one paid employe — all other work Is strictly voluntary and without compensation. 3. We own no building locally, or expensive equipment, with maintenance costs — our headquarters are rent free. 4. A capable board (with members from all sections of the county) is fully Informed of all monies received and spent each month. For over 40 years the Red Cross has been a vital part of this county's life. Most of its activities cannot be measured in dollars. However, there is one phase of its work that can be. Each year, from 1,000 to 1,500 pints of blood which have been collected by voluntary donations through the Red Cross Bloodmoblle are administered to residents of Mower County at no cost to the recipients except the hospital charge for administration. This represents a direct saving of from $35,000 to $40,000 annually to the recipients. The savings from this one project (not to mention the various other activities of this organization) amounts to about three times our annual budget. The Red Cross grew out of human needs. Since its inception it has been striving to serve those needs. Its banner knows no barrier geographically, or as concerns race, color, or creed. Thanks to your dollars the Red Cross is kept on the job not only in Mower County but throughout the world. We hope we can count on your continued support.
