Welcome to the American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts

The Northeast Massachusetts Chapter serves a population of over 1.2 million people in Essex and Middlesex counties. We are part of the Massachusetts Region of the American Red Cross.

Lahey Health sponsor - Pillowcase Project
The Northeast Massachusetts Chapter of the American Red Cross would like to thank Lahey Health for sponsoring our Pillowcase Project in area schools. The Pillowcase Project is a free emergency preparedness program developed by the American Red Cross for 3rd-5th grade youth. It is designed to increase children’s awareness and understanding of natural hazards and empower them to take preparedness actions.

Gorton’s of Gloucester responded to the Red Cross’ call for blood drives during a time of low blood supply and great demand. 21 units were collected at Gorton’s. These units of blood will help save 63 lives!

Thank you Gorton’s for your ongoing help and support of the Red Cross.

Community Heroes Breakfast

On March 29, 2018, the American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts, along with members of the community, will come together to honor local heroes who have exemplified the mission of the Red Cross over the past year. These heroes gave of themselves to better our communities and have given their time to benefit others. This breakfast is one of the largest events on the North Shore and we anticipate over 500 attendees from the business and non-profit communities alike.
