Stories From Our State Oregon Red Cross Annual Report 2010

Mission The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its Congressional charter and the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross Movement, will provide relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Mission in Action Saving and rebuilding lives — down the street, across the country and around the world.

A message from the Board Chair and Oregon Executive

In last year’s letter, we asked you to imagine an Oregon where everyone knows what to do when an earthquake strikes. So, over the past year, we’ve been asking: Is Oregon ready? Will Oregonians know what to do when a catastrophic earthquake hits the state and causes a devastating tsunami at the coast? Are our communities, organizations and businesses ready with supplies and trained volunteers to survive in isolation for one to four weeks? The answer is: We’ve got some work to do. Last year in Oregon, the American Red Cross trained nearly 12,000 people to be prepared for an emergency. The Oregon Trail Chapter conducted four neighborhood events with volunteer teams going door to door to 4,000 homes and educating residents in vulnerable communities about the supplies and training required to be ready. All five Oregon chapters participated in numerous community fairs for safety and preparedness. Our research shows that while 76 percent of Oregonians believe they could survive for three days on their own before help arrives, only 16 percent have taken the steps to put together their plans and a disaster kit. And yet, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, we have a 25 percent probability that an earthquake of 9.0 magnitude or higher will strike in our lifetimes – and some scientists say the probability is closer to 80 percent. It’s time to Get Ready Oregon. And your Red Cross will lead the way.

client The greatest inspiration for Damian Della Barba, Army Sergeant 1st Class, to enlist wasn’t a bumper sticker, a movie or an avid recruiter. It was his grandmother, who raised him and whose patriotism he warmly recalls. So when she suffered a spinal stroke and was bedridden with a bleak prognosis, Della Barba needed to get from his home in Bend to hers in San Diego. Knowing that the American Red Cross supports military members and their families with emergency communication and financial and travel assistance, Della Barba contacted his local chapter, who helped him move from active duty to emergency leave. The Red Cross also assisted him and his family with travel arrangements and a monetary loan. It was worth it, he recalls — Grandma was patriotic to the end, even passing away on Veteran’s Day.


Oregon Mountain River Chapter

This wasn’t the first time Della Barba used Red Cross services. Throughout his 21-year career in the army, the Red Cross has helped with emergency leave when his grandfather passed away, and travel to Walter Reed Medical Center when his daughter was critically ill. They even helped Della Barba get from Bosnia back to the U.S. when his father-in-law died. Of course, Della Barba’s association with the Red Cross hasn’t all been in difficult situations. He works with the organization for charitable events; Red Cross volunteers stop by during basic training; and the Bloodmobile makes frequent visits. All military members should know what the Red Cross can do for them and their families when times get tough, Della Barba says. He reminds those getting ready to ship out to make sure their families know their Social Security numbers, because that’s how the Red Cross gets messages out. “It’s amazing what the Red Cross can do for people,” he says. “Some of their work may be unknown, but it goes far beyond just disaster relief.”

The American Red Cross assisted with more than 2,600 emergency communications for Oregon’s military families last year. 5

community partner Everything starts with family, says Sabino Sardineta, executive director of El Centro Cultural. In the Latino tradition, families stay together. And they help other families in their community — a family would sooner go to a neighbor or friend than a bank for a loan. And now, with Sardineta’s help, the American Red Cross is part of that extended family. Sardineta and his team have helped establish a partnership between El Centro Cultural and the Red Cross: a Family Day of Preparedness, which provides safety and emergency education for Hispanic families. Sessions are held in Spanish and differ from the English versions in several ways: Instructors and students all eat lunch together; are encouraged to share personal stories; and receive a thorough education on the Red Cross’ role and programs. Many attendees mistakenly view the American Red Cross as a government organization, or one that solely helps in international emergencies.

Oregon Trail Chapter


But the biggest difference, says Sardineta, involves the family connection: Each family member in the class plays an active part in understanding what needs to happen in case of emergency. While instructors still teach an established curriculum including when to call 9-1-1, how to use a defibrillator (AED), and how to provide care, the sessions also have the entire family help each other learn. An 11-year old may act as a victim in a role-play exercise; a 2-year-old could get a disaster coloring book; or a dad might learn that blood donation doesn’t actually hurt. So far, the response to the Family Days of Prepared­ ness has been enthusiastic: More than 95 percent of participants would recommend the Red Cross class and feel better prepared to help in an emergency. Sardineta is glad that organizations like the Red Cross seek creative ways to respectfully connect with diverse communities. “Diversity isn’t about looking different from each other. It’s about sharing different cultural backgrounds. Bring your differences to the table and use them for a common goal. The Red Cross captures this, serving the community and the greater good.”

Nearly 12,000 Oregonians learned how to prepare for disasters last year. 7

client Baltazar Delgado had been misbehaving. So his mom, Angel, made him spend the night at home, instead of sleeping over at a friend’s. But that night, the punished teen transformed into a true hero. The Delgados have a very close family. And, ironically, their disaster started partly because of that bond: Angel’s two young daughters, Anjelique and Sierra, shared a bedroom. When Anjelique couldn’t sleep or find her nightlight, older sister Sierra went searching for an alternate light source. She found a tealight candle in the garage, brought it back to their room and lit it with a grill match. Setting it atop their plastic stereo, Sierra promised to blow it out once her little sister fell asleep. Except Sierra fell asleep, too. Older brother Baltazar woke at 3 a.m. to the sound of the smoke alarm. Jumping out of bed, he sought

Willamette Chapter


out the source and spotted smoke escaping from the bottom of his sisters’ bedroom door. He burst inside to find flames cascading from the walls to the foot of the metal bunk bed. Baltazar pulled Anjelique from the top bunk, grabbed Sierra from the bottom, and took them both outside. He then ran back inside to wake Angel, sleeping on the other side of the house and unaware of the dangerous situation that was developing. By the time the family escaped outside, the windows were shattered from the fire. Angel’s daughters had lost everything they loved in their room. Calling 9-1-1 brought the fire department as well as the American Red Cross. Volunteers took the family to a nearby motel and helped them with clothing, shelter and food vouchers for a week. Angel was surprised and humbled by how much they did for her tightly-knit family. “I knew the Red Cross helped people, but I never knew how much. They were great — as sweet as can be.”

The Oregon Red Cross provided services to more than 550 families affected by disasters last year. 9

client Sarah Krakauer didn’t look like the blond, blueeyed kids at her elementary school. With her olive coloring and long, dark curly hair, she was often given the role of “Indian princess” in school plays. Krakauer, whose paternal grandparents were Jewish, strongly identified with that side of her family in more ways than just appearance. Her curiosity led her to plot out a family tree, and in her research, she learned about the Holocaust and War Victims Tracing Center, an American Red Cross service for people seeking the fates of loved ones missing since the Holocaust and its aftermath. Locally, any Red Cross chapter can link an Oregon resident making a tracing request with the resources of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent network. With the help of Red Cross volunteers, Krakauer filled out a request for a cousin of her grandfather

Oregon Trail Chapter


named Mietek Weinberg. Information arrived in bits and pieces over the next two years, but she was thrilled to eventually learn that Weinberg had miraculously survived the Holocaust. This precious information served as a catalyst for Krakauer to delve deeper into her family’s history — rediscovering a rare Polish prayer book that her grand­ mother had left her, noting the births and deaths listed throughout it and pursuing further familial connections. This book is so rare and valued that a reproduction of it is on display at a museum in Poland. Moved by her experience, Krakauer now makes it a priority to share her personal experience with those seeking information about relatives lost during the Holocaust and to educate the community about the Red Cross’ tracing service. She thinks it’s natural, even imperative, for people to understand where they come from, and explains that the Red Cross can be a huge help in making those connections. “The Red Cross has just been amazing. I’m so impressed that this program exists. It gives me faith in humanity,” she says. “It’s not about the Holocaust. It’s about life.”

Last year, the Oregon Red Cross helped reconnect families separated by armed conflicts and disasters around the world with 13 Red Cross messages and tracing requests. 11

lifesaver Jay Burris describes himself as a “behind the desk kind of guy.” An operations manager for Comcast, Burris doesn’t get out into the field much these days. But one morning while driving to work, an emergency situation pulled him back into the elements. Burris watched as a car hit the back of a commercial semi-trailer and dropped from a 25-foot embankment, landing upside down in five feet of water. Burris pulled off the road and ran to the scene. He dialed 9-1-1, tossed his cell phone to an onlooker, and then headed into the water, eventually pulling the car’s driver out through an open window. Although the driver initially seemed lifeless, once out of the water she took a breath and opened her eyes. Aware that she may have spinal injuries, Burris

Oregon Pacific Chapter


carefully swam her to shore and returned to the vehicle to look for other survivors. With the help of two other drivers who’d arrived on scene, he was able to right the vehicle and confirm there were no other passengers. The driver survived and Burris returned to work that day, with only a few minor cuts. Burris can thank his employer for providing the training that served him well in this emergency situation – all Comcast employees who work in the community are certified in Red Cross first aid. And although time had passed since Burris’ last class, he recalls the value of what he learned. “One of the main things I remembered from the Red Cross training was not to panic,” he says. “There are steps to everything. Assess the situation, and then act. Stay calm; tackle the big things first.” Although Burris admits that not everyone might jump into a submerged vehicle, there’s always something that you can do in an emergency. “Don’t just stand around and wait. You may see someone helping, but they may need more assistance. Get trained and be ready to act if needed.”

Last year, more than 98,000 Oregonians learned life-saving skills through the American Red Cross. 13

volunteer Baker City, Oregon, is in one of the few counties that share both the Pacific and Mountain time zones. In the case of hardworking dentist Sean Benson, that extra hour goes straight into his work as an advocate and volunteer with the American Red Cross. Benson originally got involved with the Red Cross through the Oregon Dental Association, where he served as president. At the time, the Red Cross CEO was seeking community leaders to help guide the new Northeastern Oregon District, and in 2008, Benson officially joined the advisory board. Two years later, Benson continues to be an ambassador and ally for the Red Cross in Morrow, Umatilla, Wallowa, Union and Baker counties. As an advisory board member, Benson’s activities include helping with fundraising strategies and identifying programs that residents can utilize. With the large National Guard community in the area,


Northeastern Oregon District

a primary focus is supporting military members and their families. As a healthcare professional, Benson also enjoys developing CPR and first aid programs. “Volunteering with the Red Cross is a great opportunity to develop partnerships and share experiences in the healthcare field,” he says. If that weren’t enough to keep him busy, every year Benson travels to Honduras to perform dentistry on school-age children. Closer to home, he’ll soon partner with the Red Cross again, participating as one of 100 dentists with the Oregon Dental Association’s Mission of Mercy (MOM) project. MOM will take place in Portland in the fall of 2010 and will provide free dentistry to about 1,000 people who could not otherwise afford it. Though all Benson’s activities define selflessness, he believes it’s actually selfish fulfillment; he receives a lot of emotional satisfaction from volunteering. “It shows you what real need is,” he says. “For a strong, healthy community, you need an organization like the Red Cross. There aren’t many organizations that can do the things that the Red Cross does — and does so well.”

About 3,000 Oregonians gave their time to make their neighbors — across town or across the country — safer by volunteering for the American The Oregon Red Cross last year. provided services to more than 600 families affected by disasters 15

community partner Volunteerism runs through the veins of Umpqua Bank. One clear example? Each year, employees can take advantage of up to 40 paid hours to volunteer. Umpqua employees are regularly encouraged to give their time and energy to local non-profits and community events. Some even create support committees and teams within the bank. And, for nearly 10 years, the American Red Cross has been one of Umpqua’s primary partners, with the bank lending financial, community and creative support to events such as the annual Heroes Breakfast in Medford. The breakfast, says Lori Williams, vice president and commercial relationship manager for Umpqua Bank, is truly a feel-good event. “You see smiles all around. We acknowledge people for doing something


Southern Oregon Chapter

so selfless, for jumping in when someone needs something: Our heroes don’t ever think twice about saving a life,” she says. For the past six years, the bank has also served as the title sponsor of the American Red Cross Golf Tournament, donating more than $16,000 to support services and programs in Southern Oregon. The game comes with a creative catch — if golfers commit to donating blood, they’ll get a handicap to play through a hole. It’s a win-win for all: Donors are delighted to save a life . . . and improve their score. Off the course, the bank regularly promotes blood drives and encourages employees, customers and the public to attend. Umpqua has a deep respect for the Red Cross and their activities down the street, across the country and around the world. As a result, Umpqua executives have served as board members for the Red Cross for a decade and counting. Says Williams: “When you look back over the years and see the people involved in the organization, it makes you incredibly proud to be associated with the Red Cross. It’s very impressive — their community supporters read like a ‘Who’s Who’ of Oregon.”

Last year, more than 103,000 Oregonians gave life-saving blood through the American Red Cross. 17
