“I can’t think of a better gift than to have others give to the efforts being made by the American Red Cross to provide assistance to distressed families dealing with the aftermath of the damage left by Hurricane Sandy,” said Hobbs.
According to the faith-based media specialist, her inspiration comes from Matthew 25:40, where Jesus shared the parable that explained that, when we help others in need, we honor Him. “I believe it is imperative that we as Christians live out our faith in moments of crisis by exemplifying the principles and ideals that drive us to be our brother’s and sister’s keeper,” she explained.
Even in the midst of a joyous birthday celebration, Hobbs remains focused on her primary mission and assignment—helping the hurting that desperately need assistance in these challenging times.
According to the American Red Cross, Hurricane Sandy left millions of families in hardest hit regions with no power, forcing thousands to evacuate their homes. The organization responded immediately with more than 250 shelters open across sixteen states that provided overnight stays to nearly 11,000 people. “The relief efforts for Sandy will be long and difficult,” says the Red Cross on its website. “People will continue to need help for weeks, even months, to put their lives back together.”
