Why Give?

The American Red Cross Cascades Region provides vital services to Oregon and Southwest Washington residents 365 days a year—from responding to home fires in local neighborhoods to teaching first aid and CPR to community groups. We’re able to provide these services thanks to a corps of nearly 2,000 devoted volunteers and the generosity of our donors. The American Red Cross puts these donations to good use—we are proud to tell donors that we invest an average of 91 cents of every dollar in humanitarian services and programs.
