As a result, we’re able to be there for all when our aid is needed most.”

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. Through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, the American Red Cross prides its self on always being there in times of need.
