Ready 365/Disaster Partners

  • Disaster Relief

Our nation and our community depend on the American Red Cross.

When a family flees a burning home with nothing but their lives

…the Red Cross is there.

The members of the Ready 365/Disaster Partners program enable your local Red Cross to respond immediately to the needs of the individuals and families impacted by disaster through annual financial donations. No matter a hurricane, wildfire, house fire or tornado, the American Red Cross provides immediate basic needs for shelter, food, clothing, medications, emotional support and health services. All Disaster Relief is free to these victims because of the generosity of our donors.

In addition to providing local service, the American Red Cross trains a cadre of disaster relief teams. Whether responding to assist first-responders at a house fire, training alongside emergency management teams or those who deploy at a moment’s notice for national disasters such as Joplin tornado, Hurricane Irene, Texas Wildfires, Midwest flooding and more, these local and national deployments make our communities stronger as they bring back “hands-on” experience.

When a tornado demolishes a neighborhood and victims seek shelter

…the Red Cross is there.

Donations, from these members, offset a range of expenses including warehousing, supplies, shelter and feeding costs, maintaining and deploying our fleet of disaster response vehicles and reconnecting individuals separated during disasters. Our Ready 365/Disaster Partners are recognized as community, civic and philanthropic-minded individuals, businesses or organizations and receive a high level of recognition and access to Red Cross information and leadership. They truly are leaders when it comes to disaster response.

Corporate Partners

The American Red Cross helps people in emergencies every day.

A hot meal delivered to victims after a disaster, blood when it is needed most, shelter when there is nowhere else to turn, an emergency message delivered to a member of the Armed Forces from their family -- these are just some of the ways that gifts are put to work through the American Red Cross. Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners, the American Red Cross is empowering people to perform extraordinary acts in the face of emergencies every single day.
