The Red Cross needs help and and you can step up through your Facebook profile.
The local Red Cross chapter is holding a fundraising drive next week called "Every 16-hours." On average, volunteers are sent out every 16-hours to help families in need.
Ellen Knapp, regional CEO of the American Red Cross Central Valley Region said, "We are helping neighbors and family members, and with your donation, we will continue for years to come."
Last year alone, the Fresno-Madera Red Cross helped more 500 families impacted by fires.
The fundraising drive takes place on Tuesday, July 16th from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and during that time, they are asking you to change your Facebook profile to match theirs and to donate $16.
The goal is to raise $16,000.
