For the last 100 years, the American Red Cross has been there for people in the Eastern Pennsylvania Region during the moments when they needed us. We have helped thousands of people affected by local disasters including home fires, floods, tornadoes and seasonal emergencies. Our region has sent volunteers across the country as well as responded to local events within the region. From health and safety classes, to lifesaving blood collection and support of military members, their families and veterans, the Red Cross has helped make our community safer and more prepared for what may come in the next 100 years.
Throughout the year, our chapters will be commemorating the many past and present contributions of the Red Cross and its volunteers through a series of events.
" For more than 100 years the Red Cross has served Eastern Pennsylvania. We have helped in times of disaster and partnered with you to make the community stronger and more resilient, while ensuring we work together to maintain a lifesaving blood supply. We always have and we always will."
- Judge Renée Cardwell Hughes (Ret.)
