The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies. Every day, our local Red Cross provides comfort and care to someone in need. Your gift to “Red Cross BASH: Celebrating Those Who Give” supports the full mission of the American Red Cross, giving us the flexibility to respond whenever and wherever we’re needed. Our regional presence ensures volunteers are available to provide local, lifesaving support through five lines of service:
- Disaster Relief: Offering critical support, ranging from food and financial support to a warm place to sleep when families lose everything.
- Blood Services: Supporting the nation’s blood supply by ensuring blood and blood products are available when needed.
- Training: Equipping citizens to save lives through courses like first aid, CPR, and AED.
- Service to the Armed Forces: Supporting military members, veterans, and their families through times of emergency.
- International Services: Working closely with the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network, we provide support with disaster relief and strive to eliminate measles and rubella.
