The American Red Cross issued the followed statement on the donation: “The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from David Spade who, over the years, has selflessly donated his time, talent, and money to assist those in need. This contribution is vitally important as the Red Cross works around the clock to provide food, shelter, mental health counseling and other assistance to those in need in 11 states to help people devastated by the recent deadly tornadoes and floods.”
“With the devastating disasters the tornadoes and floods are causing I wanted to help the Red Cross in their efforts to provide help as quickly as possible. I also hope this will help to shine the spotlight on the people of the United States who are in desperate need right now and that others will join me in donating what they can to support the American Red Cross’ huge disaster relief effort.”
