Down the street, across the country or around the world... we're there.

It’s often impossible or unsafe to even get to the location or send mass quantities of supplies collected from communities, which are why here at the American Red Cross we allow individuals to donate money directly to disasters so that the affected countries can get the supplies that they know they need. Our disaster relief funds and response relies heavily on the generous donations of time of our volunteers and monetary support.
