2023 has been a year of emerging needs — especially in the face of the climate crisis, which took a devastating toll on Americans by sparking a record number of billion-dollar disasters and deepening a national blood shortage.
Through this and countless other emergencies, people stepped up to support families and communities in need. This collective generosity touched millions of lives by enabling the American Red Cross to:
Shelter, feed and provide comfort after disasters.
Supply about 40% of the nation’s blood.
Support military members, veterans and their families.
Teach skills that save lives.
Provide international humanitarian aid.
As 2023 comes to a close, please remember those who will need support to cope with crises in the new year. Consider adding charitable giving to your year-end traditions and make a tax-deductible donation at redcross.org. A donation of any size will make a difference in someone’s life.
You can also give back by donating blood for patients in need or volunteering in your community. Learn more and get involved at redcross.org.
