  • Red Cross Georgia About Us

Our Community

The American Red Cross of Georgia serves 10 million people through a network of 9 chapters: Augusta Area, Central Midwest Georgia, Metropolitan Atlanta, Northeast Georgia, Northwest Georgia, South Georgia, Southeast & Coastal Georgia, Southwest Georgia and West Central Georgia.

We're in local communities every day, helping people prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. Last year, Georgia's Red Cross helped more people following home fires with food, shelter and other essentials than any other region in the country! We teach life-saving skills, provide resources for military families and help international families in crisis. We also support our Southern Blood Services region in their efforts to ensure a safe and ready blood supply in Georgia. How do we empower so many of our neighbors to respond to emergencies? By mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. We can't turn heartbreak into hope without your help!
