Individuals, couples, families or family foundations can experience unique disaster-centric Red Cross mission moments by investing at least $10,000 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief and joining the Humanitarian Circle-Disaster Supporter (HC-DS) program. HC-DS member mission moments include, but are not limited to, two (2) complimentary Red Cross preparedness courses (First Aid, CPR and AED), and, invitation-only disaster update calls with Red Cross senior leadership.
HC-DS membership will ensure we are there when people need us the most. Before the first shelter is opened, the first volunteer deployed, or the first meal served, the Red Cross must have the proper supplies and systems in place. Your investment in Red Cross readiness means that we do not waste precious time gathering resources and training volunteers after a disaster strikes. Instead, we ready ourselves in advance and maintain more than 75,000 trained volunteers nationwide, relief supplies to support 500,000 people and shelter supplies for 350,000 people.
