Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Why Support the March of Dimes?
Everyone enjoys being part of a winning team. March of Dimes is the leading organization in the United States - and right here in Texas - in the fight for the health of all moms and babies.
March of Dimes has an incredible track record of success beginning with finding the cure for polio. However, our greatest accomplishments lie directly in our midst. Beginning in 2003, we turned our sights to tackling one of the biggest crisis facing our nation's children today: prematurity.
Premature birth has skyrocketed over the past 20 years.
You can fight for the health of all moms and babies right here in Texas. We urge you to get involved and give back to your local community. March of Dimes is a volunteer-based organization. We count on volunteers to help in all levels of our organization.
