Each year disasters around the world devastate millions of people. But many communities are missing from the maps responders use to deliver lifesaving aid. To help get relief into people’s hands, the American Red Cross and partner organizations have launched the Missing Maps project. In 2020, VoLo Foundation made a grant to the American National Red Cross, in the South Florida Region of Palm Beach and Martin County. The funds supported the Missing Maps meeting room at the American Red Cross Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
In February 2021, harsh winter storms left more than 100,000 people without power across five states and more than 8 million people in Texas without water. VoLo’s support to the American Red Cross provided disaster relief to communities and individuals in Texas affected by the winter storms. Red Cross disaster relief supplied those most in need with shelter, meals, and relief items.
