The 2006 Red Cross Car Raffle raised over $181,000 for local Red Cross programs and services. These services include disaster response, meals delivered to the elderly and homebound, providing a safe supply of blood to area hospitals, emergency preparedness education, and lifesaving health and safety training.

One program to benefit is the School Safety Initiative. This program brings Red Cross First Aid and CPR courses to teachers and students in inner cities. Championed by David Long of Long Motor Company, the School Safety Initiative helped introduce Red Cross training and basic safety procedures into the lives of more than 6,800 school children in Trenton during the 2004-2005 school year. The American Red Cross of Central New Jersey plans to expand this successful safety program to additional school districts in Central New Jersey.

The American Red Cross of Central New Jersey is a non-governmental agency that serves the people of Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and parts of Somerset counties. Led by volunteers, the Red Cross offers a broad array of vital services to our community in need. You can help, too – volunteer your time, make a monetary donation, donate blood, and/or take a CPR course. For more information on the programs and services of the Red Cross and to learn how you can get involved, visit or call 609-951-8550.
