How You Can Help the American Red Cross


Since March is Red Cross month, now is a good time to get involved with one of the nation’s leading humanitarian organizations dedicated to assisting people in need throughout the United States and the world. Since 2006, the Red Cross and FEMA have worked together to help government agencies and community organizations provide food, shelter, and family reunification services for people affected by disasters.
Each year, the Red Cross responds to about 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the U.S.  In the past this organization and its partners have opened 1,400 evacuation shelters for disaster survivors, provided services for nearly 450,000 evacuees, and provided more than 68 million hot meals in the U.S. alone.
To provide these services, the Red Cross depends on public support. There are many ways to get involved. You can make a donationvolunteer in your community, give blood, or become a digital advocate, among other things. To learn more about how you can help, visit RedCross.org.
