  • Rhode Island Red Cross Century of Service

Join Us As We Celebrate Our Centennial Anniversary

From providing aid after unspeakable tragedies, to feeding hungry children and caring for the sick, the Rhode Island Red Cross has been saving lives since September 15, 1916.

Not only have these brave volunteers risked their own lives for generations, they have reached out and cared for many; providing warmth and comfort when hope seemed to be lost, and cheering the lonely with their company.

From health and safety classes to lifesaving blood collection, and through our support of military members, their families, and veterans, the Red Cross has helped to make our community safer and more prepared for what may come in the next 100 years.

Throughout 2016 our region will be commemorating the many past and present contributions of the Red Cross and its volunteers through a series of community events.
