14 times a week, Oregon Red Cross volunteers respond to disasters locally, regionally and worldwide. From house fires to wildfires to floods, we provide humanitarian assistance in the form of shelter, food, clothing, comfort kits and emotional support.
The Red Cross Chapter teaches the skills that save lives to thousands of local residents annually. Classes include adult and infant CPR, first aid, AED instruction, pet first aid, disaster preparedness and babysitter training.
Your donations of blood are what make the American Red Cross the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the U.S. In our region, the Red Cross supplies blood to more than 60 hospitals to help patients in need.
Volunteers are at the heart of the Red Cross. With 2,500 trained volunteers region-wide, the Red Cross prepares people for emergencies, responds to disasters, provides training in lifesaving skills, educates the community, raises funds, connects military families and ensures a stable blood supply.
