  • American Red Cross

As a community-based humanitarian organization, the American Red Cross Minnesota Region prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

By helping people learn how to take care of their families and neighbors, the Red Cross strengthens communities and readies them for all types of disasters, including home fires, tornadoes, winter storms and health emergencies.

More than 2,000 volunteers, including more than 130 youth volunteers, ensure that the Red Cross fulfills its mission. The Minnesota Region serves 5.2 million people across Minnesota and part of western Wisconsin.
