The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region Honors Local Partners

As senior pastor at Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood, California, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer devotes himself to preaching God’s word and spreading his message of faith to the church’s congregants. Active in his Greater Los Angeles community, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer has affiliated Faithful Central Bible Church with the local branch of the American Red Cross, known as the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region.

On December 2, the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region held a reception to recognize its partnerships with 86 faith-based affiliates and other community groups. The branch’s relationships with these organizations, among them Faithful Central Bible Church, has enabled a broader range of community outreach for disaster preparedness and relief. In fact, in the 2014 fiscal year alone, the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region has provided disaster preparedness education to more than 1,000 individuals, raised nearly $170,000 in donations, and engaged close to 30,000 people through events in the community.

To acknowledge the efforts of its partners, the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region presented honorees with certificates of appreciation. Local Red Cross representatives also provided attendees of the reception a tour of the branch’s Emergency Operations Center.
