As an independent, non-profit organization, we do not receive government funding. Instead, we rely on the generosity of individuals and companies.
Each year the St. Louis Area Chapter of the American Red Cross facilitates a number of different events throughout the Eastern Missouri region, and all of these programs rely on the generous support of our community corporations. With your support, we provide disaster relief, First Aid and CPR training, Service to Armed Forces and more.
During the holiday season, the Eastern Missouri Region provides an opportunity for the community to honor military men and women through our Holiday Mail for Heroes program. The community will write holiday greetings to our service men and women, and the American Red Cross collects and delivers them.
The American Red Cross High School Scholarship Program gives high schools and their students the opportunity to help others, while also establishing a scholarship fund to benefit engaged students.
