24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the American Red Cross stands ready to assist people in the face of emergencies. Through the READY 365 Giving Program, corporate partners across the Eastern New York Region stand with us as we provide lifesaving services to those in need, every day of the year. We thank these outstanding partners for their support, and we are privileged to put their compassion into action.
Members of the Clara Barton Society have made a sustained financial commitment to the American Red Cross. Their support ensures that the work begun by our founder, Clara Barton, more than 125 years ago continues in our communities today and for years to come.
Each year, the American Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters around the country. Members of our Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) pre-invest in disaster relief, ensuring the Red Cross can pre-position supplies, secure shelters, maintain vehicles and train volunteers so we’re always ready to respond, day and night. In the Eastern New York Region, we are especially grateful to National Grid for serving as an ADGP Member and helping us assist people affected by disasters nationwide.
