As hurricane season approaches, the Red Cross is preparing to help anyone who will be affected. For all kinds of emergencies, from traffic accidents to home fires to large natural disasters, the Red Cross is one of the most trusted organizations in the U.S. Helping people affected by fire, flood or accidents is not new to them. They’ve been around for over a hundred years, and are still going strong. Anyone waiting to help with their work can do so in a number of ways, from organizing fundraisers and volunteering to donating clothes via a Red Cross clothing pick up to help fund their programs.

How often do you go shopping every year? If you were to break it down into how many times you go shopping every month or every week, would the number be higher than necessary?
