In Person
Red Cross values the partnership with its community and always accepts donations of cash or checks in person or by mail. Simply identify a Red Cross office nearest you to make a cash or check donation.
Red Cross does not accept donated goods

While well intended, items like donated water, food and clothing often bring logistical challenges that take personnel away from the people they’re trying to help.

Red Cross asks that people entrust them with the money they would spend on a physical item. As a tax-exempt nonprofit, Red Cross can use economies of scale to efficiently use your donation to supply what the community needs most.
