American Red Cross
Non-Profit & Civic Organizations
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. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. We depend on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform our mission.
