About the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country and across the world—in emergencies.

Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than 700,000 volunteers and 34,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through nearly 720 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some 4 million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected.

As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, a global network of more than 180 national societies, the Red Cross helps restore hope and dignity to the world’s most vulnerable people. An average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.

The American Red Cross name and emblem are used with its permission, which in no way constitutes an endorsement, express or implied, of any product, service, company, opinion or political position.  For more information about the American Red Cross, please visit www.redcross.org.
