Service to the Armed Forces

We relay urgent messages between U.S. service members and their families through our global communications.

Volunteer Services

We could have just the opportunity you’re looking for—from training to respond to disasters to supporting a blood drive—from delivering messages to members of our military to connecting families displaced by conflict.

Blood Services

We collect blood every day from donors who help ensure a safe supply of blood when it’s needed.
