A Message from the Mississippi Region CEO

On behalf of the American Red Cross, I welcome you to the Mississippi Region website. I invite you to explore the site to discover more about our mission, programs and services, and how you can help us make a difference in our community.

The Red Cross is a humanitarian organization dedicated to saving lives and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. For example, when local house fires take place within our community, our volunteers and staff are always there to launch the immediate needs of those in need by providing water, food, emotional support and other resources. When large groups of people are temporarily displaced from their homes, the Red Cross responds by opening and operating shelters. We want you to take comfort in the fact that we are ready to respond at a moment’s notice when help is needed.

The Red Cross is encouraging community residents to join us in our effort to make sure Mississippi residents are better prepared, should disaster strike, by taking steps to Be Red Cross Ready.

The Red Cross will continue to deliver these community-based resources thanks to the humanitarian support of the people of Mississippi. Please consider the Red Cross when you plan your personal giving and volunteer activities.

I hope you enjoy navigating through our website and learning more about our mission, activities and community engagement in the Mississippi Region. If you have questions or comments, please contact one of our regional leadership team listed below and be sure to come back and visit us often for updates in your community!
