For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has been helping neighbors down the street, across the country and around the world.
As the nation’s premier emergency preparedness and response
organization, the Red Cross is there through every imaginable crisis—from house fires to earthquakes.
Founded by visionary leader Clara Barton, the American Red Cross was formed to aid domestic and overseas relief efforts. Over the years, the organization has expanded its services but maintains the mission of preventing and relieving suffering. Today, victims of disaster, patients needing life-saving blood, members of the military and many more turn to the Red Cross nearly every second of every day. With nearly 270
chapters across the U.S., we have a presence in every community. With our global Red Cross partners, we comprise the largest humanitarian network in the world.
