An insurance professional and recipient of a Financial Independent Council Award, Andre Dobison has served as Primerica’s regional vice president for more than three decades. In his spare time, Andre Dobison enjoys following Louisiana sports teams, including the New Orleans Saints.

In August of 2016, New Orleans Saints quarterback Ken Stabler will join other notable professional football professionals in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The posthumous achievement was announced in February. Stabler’s class includes football veterans such as wide receiver Marvin Harrison, coach Tony Dungy, and owner Edward DeBartolo, Jr. The 2016 class, chosen by the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s selection committee, will be honored and remembered at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

Stabler started for the Saints during the 1982 and 1983 seasons. Under his guidance, the team was a contender for the playoffs and achieved an 8-8 win-loss record for only the second time in the franchise’s history. A recipient of the American Football Conference (AFC) Player of the Year award, Stabler earned a Super Bowl ring and led the league in completion percentage and passer rating during his career.

Red Cross Disaster Relief Techniques

One of the many ways Andre Dobison gives back to his community is through donations to local and national charitable organizations. A frequent supporter of the Red Cross, Andre Dobison primarily gives clothing and food to the national relief organization.

One of the largest programs the American Red Cross operates is its disaster relief initiative, which responds to tens of thousands of natural disasters each year. Some of the most common disasters are fires, storms, and transportation accidents. It uses mobile response vehicles, also called ERVs, to move food and supplies swiftly through areas affected by disasters and immediately provide support to those most in need.

For those displaced by disasters, the Red Cross also operates overnight shelters that give temporary residents hot meals and other forms of disaster support. Some forms of relief are smaller, such as basic toiletries and tools to help clean up disaster areas. All disaster relief assistance from the Red Cross is free and made available through the support of volunteers and donors.
