About the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross provides key services such as disaster relief, service to armed forces and their families, lifesaving health and safety courses, over half of the nation’s blood supply, and helps reconnect families separated internationally by war and disaster. The ARC is not a government funded agency and therefor relies on the benevolent donations of our supporters in order to continue our goal of alleviating human suffering by mobilizing the power of volunteers.
