About Us

The Burke County Chapter of the American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Our chapter is part of the Carolina Piedmont Region of the Red Cross, which comprises 10 chapters that cover 15 counties in North Carolina. The concept of the region is for the chapters to pool mutual aid and resources to better provide services to their clients. This provides a network that uses a team effort to tackle challenges - such as disasters - that may be more than just one chapter can handle by itself.
