American Red Cross
The mission of the American Red Cross is to alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Disaster relief and recovery are vital parts of our mission. When disasters strike, the Red Cross mobilizes its corps of dedicated workers — 94 percent volunteers — to offer shelter, meals, health and mental health services, and other assistance to address the basic needs of disaster survivors.
In response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, the American Red Cross launched a massive relief effort across multiple states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. To date, the Red Cross and our partners have provided 939,000 overnight shelter stays and served over 3,145,000 meals and snacks. Each day, the Red Cross is expanding our reach into more communities, providing food, water, and relief supplies to people who are facing the daunting challenges of cleanup and recovery. You can help people affected by disasters like storms and countless other crises by making a gift to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to, and help people recover from disasters big and small. Thank you for your support!
