Did you know?
The American Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian network – 97 million volunteers helping in 186 countries. In this country, the Red Cross helps change lives seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
• 200 times a day, American Red Cross volunteers help a family who has lost everything in a house fire or other disaster.
• 475 times a day, the American Red Cross connects deployed service members with their families.
• 21,000 times a day, a patient receives blood through the American Red Cross blood program.
• 43,000 times a day, someone receives life-saving American Red Cross health, safety and preparedness training.
Imagine how many people the American Red Cross help in just one year. Whether you want to make a donation, volunteer, give blood or become even more involved in responding to disasters, there is always a way to make a difference.
If you live near an area that has recently been devastated by the recent tornadoes I urge you to volunteer.
