140 Years of Service: Red Cross Disaster Responses through the Years
May 20, 2021
Disaster relief has been at the center of the American Red Cross mission since Clara Barton founded our organization in 1881. Ever since, Red Cross volunteers have worked tirelessly to serve, give hope and innovate to address people’s emerging needs. Today, as disasters become more frequent and intense, we’re continuing to adapt — just as we have for the past 140 years. Visit redcross.org/RedCross140 to learn more.
