  • Serving Disaster Meals

The American Red Cross saves lives. When disaster strikes, we respond with food, shelter and hope. When barriers of distance, language or warfare separate loved ones, we open lines of communication. When families, co-workers and communities must prepare for emergencies, we help them take action.

Each year in our communities, we bring together more than 1.2 thousand people to care for their neighbors, train over 82 thosand people in life-saving skills and respond to a disaster about once every other day. In emergencies large and small - a house fire, a gas leak, a flood - right here in our community or on distant shores, people can count on the Red Cross.

Services Provided

Around the clock, every day of the year, we stand ready to respond to emergencies. At every disaster, a volunteer or staff member assesses the victims' needs and provides assistance to help families take the first steps to recovery.
