Tampa, FL -- The Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Red Cross announced the newest and cutest tool to help local children affected by disasters such as home fires.
Not only will “Piper the Puppy” bring comfort to a child on the curb after a fire, it will also serve as a new and creative funding stream for the local chapter.
For a donation of $100, “Piper the Puppy” can be adopted along with providing shelter, three meals, a cot, two blankets and basic hygiene items for one day to someone who loses everything when their home is destroyed by a disaster.
The first Pipers were deployed to a Progress Village family with six children whose home was destroyed by a fire Thursday, July 14.
