On March 23, donate to provide emergency shelter, food and other aid for families in need
Tomorrow marks the eighth annual American Red Cross Giving Day to help people affected by disasters big and small in the U.S. by donating at redcross.org/givingday.
Every eight minutes, generous donations enable the Red Cross to respond to a disaster in the U.S. when help can’t wait for families who need emergency shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance. This support remains critical as large disasters like hurricanes, floods and wildfires grow in frequency and intensity year after year. What’s more, home fires also continue to upend lives each day: So far in 2022, Red Cross volunteers have helped nearly 60,000 people after more than 15,900 home fires across the country.
HOW YOU CAN HELP On March 23, Red Cross Giving Day, unite with thousands of compassionate people by donating at redcross.org/givingday. A gift of any size makes a difference to provide shelter, food, relief items, emotional support and other assistance.
MARCH IS RED CROSS MONTH Red Cross Giving Day is part of Red Cross Month — a national tradition started nearly 80 years ago when President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the first national Red Cross Month proclamation in 1943 to recognize those giving back through the Red Cross.
