The Red Cross Wants Your Moral Support

The December Skidmore News was right – it cannot be done another way.  In December 1918, influenza and winter weather made it difficult to raise funds for the Red Cross in the usual way, through events and door-to-door requests.  As the ad reminds us, America always has and America always will do her part, and like the Skidmore citizens of old, we would not desert the organization that is doing so much for those along the eastern part of our country.  We have the advantages of Web and text message donations in these modern times – won’t you give more than your moral support to the Red Cross this time?  We, too, are humanity loving people, and we are busy, so we’d better do this now.
