Red Cross

Red Cross

On Decmber 1, 2013 the Illinois State Society donated $5,000 to the central Illinois Red Cross fund to help victims of a tornado in central Illinois counties. This ISS tradition of helping disaster victims in Illinois dates back to October 1871 when the ISS members sent $3,000 to Chicago Mayor Joseph Medill to help victims of the great Chicago Fire.
