“The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.”
Each day the American Red Cross supports people in emergencies. Whether helping those displaced through disasters, providing much needed emergency blood donations or by supporting members of our armed forces and their families, the Red Cross is there when emergencies strike. In order to provide the support, when it’s needed the most, the Red Cross relies on volunteers like you.
“Volunteers make it possible to respond to nearly 70,000 disasters every year, most of them home and apartment fires.”
