Stanley Perdue, regional chief executive officer, is absorbing Riverside operations as part of his regional duties.
In Riverside County the Red Cross serves a population of 2.2 million residents. "This is a very positive change for the county and its residents," said Perdue. "In the next six to twelve months we will be transforming all our systems to be more efficient which will allow us to be more fiscally steward." This year, the American Red Cross has been faced with a number of large disasters nationally and internationally from the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami disaster in March, to the spring tornados in the southeast and Midwest sections of the United States. "Although it's a good thing that we haven't had a large disaster happen in Riverside County in recent months, the downside is people end up designating their dollars specifically towards a particular disaster not to their local chapter," said Perdue. When donations are earmarked for a particular purpose, the Red Cross, Perdue said, can only use those funds as requested. "Part of the Red Cross's transformation as we unify these three counties is to become more forward facing," Perdue said. "It's important to have a strong solid chapter in your own community before a major disaster happens," said Perdue. The Red Cross is seeking not only individual donations but corporate sponsors as well. On August 9, the Red Cross announced the West Coast Division of Circle K Stores Inc. raised $140,000 in support of the American Red Cross, through its first "King of Clubs" golf tournament on August 4 at the Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon in Beaumont. Circle K decided to focus their efforts in supporting the Red Cross mission in the communities their employees live in after they collected more than $230,000 in months following the devastating Haiti earthquake. "Circle K has become an amazing partner of the Red Cross, not only through this extraordinary tournament, but also through their in-store customer donation programs which they are promoting year-round," said Perdue.
