The Red Cross Is Helping People Affected by Disasters
During the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergencies don’t stop, and neither does the American Red Cross. Even in the face of the coronavirus, families still depend on us each day – whether it's providing blankets and food to someone recovering from a flood or finding shelter for a family who has lost everything to a wildfire or home fire, your matched gift can be life-changing. Our commitment is unwavering, even as we’ve adapted some of our services to protect everyone’s safety.
In a disaster, children and families often lose their home and are left exposed to the elements. $25 can provide 5 warm blanketsto protect them from the cold and help them sleep comfortably in emergency shelters.
Give a gift to make sure no family goes hungry after a disaster strikes by supporting our shelter kitchens and mobile feeding through emergency response vehicles. $50 can provide a hot meal and snacks to 50 people after a disaster.
When disaster strikes, parents can lose everything - including essential they need to keep their babies healthy in the aftermath while staying at an emergency shelter. $160 can provide a crib and infant care supplies for a family in need, including formula, diapers and more.
Emergencies can force families to leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. $250 can provide a full day of emergency shelter for 5 people impacted by disaster, including 3 meals, 2 blankets, 1 cot, snacks and personal hygiene supplies.
