    About Us

    The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that...
    ...all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope;
    ...our communities are ready and prepared for disasters;
    ...everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products;
    ...all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and
    ...in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.

    The Red Cross provides vital services to the area 365 days a year—from responding to home fires in local neighborhoods to teaching first aid and CPR to community groups. We’re able to provide these services thanks to a corps of more than 4,000 dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our donors. The American Red Cross puts these donations to good use. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need.How do we do it? By practicing what we preach: preparedness. We train our volunteers. We plan ahead for the types of disasters that strike in our community. And we train individuals, businesses and community groups so they too, can be prepared.
