In 2021, families faced emergency needs around the globe. We’re grateful for our volunteers, donors and partners, who answered the call to help this year. Learn more at redcross.org.
In 2021, as families faced the continuing and overlapping challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and global conflict, people stepped up through the Red Cross to care for those in need.
Here are some highlights of this year’s work made possible by generous donors, volunteers and partners:
HOW YOU CAN HELP Turning compassion into action has been at the heart of the American Red Cross since Clara Barton founded our organization over 140 years ago. In honor of Clara’s 200th birthday on December 25, help people in need by donating at redcross.org/gift. A gift of any size provides hope during a crisis.
Patients are also counting on the kindness and generosity of blood donors. This holiday season, we urge you to give blood or platelets to help make a lifesaving difference for those in need. Visit RedCrossBlood.org to schedule an appointment today.
You can also give the gift of time. Visit redcross.org/VolunteerToday to review our most urgently needed volunteer positions.
