Welcome to the American Red Cross of the California Northwest

The American Red Cross of the California Northwest has been active in our area since 1898, when Sonoma County volunteers made sandwiches for the men of Company E as they marched away to fight in the Spanish-American War. The American National Red Cross officially chartered the Chapter in 1917.

Today, with six counties, and a combined population of 941,000 people, the Chapter has one of the fastest growing populations in the state.
