Welcome to the Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter

The American Red Cross of the Greater Lehigh Valley serves residents of Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton counties. With a population of approximately 1.3 million people, our chapter provides food and shelter in emergencies, assists members of our armed forces and their families, teaches lifesaving skills, and so much more. All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.
