American Red Cross Â®
The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors – across the street, across the country and across the world- during emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new-the 660,000 volunteers and 33,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through nearly 700 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. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work. To learn more about the Red Cross, visit www.redcross.org.
