Corporate volunteerism with the American Red Cross enables employees to give more and your company to get more: more workplace satisfaction, more enthusiasm and more high fives when working alongside your teammates to help others.
Ways to Get Involved
Even though home fires are our most common disaster threat, too many homes do not have a smoke alarm installed, and a majority of fire deaths occur in these homes. Volunteers will get the opportunity to go door-to-door to install smoke alarms and provide fire and disaster safety education in at-risk communities. By installing smoke alarms and providing safety information, your employees get the chance to ensure that local residents take action to reduce the risk of home fires and save lives.
Missing Maps Mapathon
Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100, 000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally ‘missing’ from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief effort.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, and generous blood donors are the only source. When you sponsor an on-site blood drive, you provide employees with the opportunity to help save lives.
Lunch & Learn
Did you know the Red Cross responds to 180 disasters each day and has helped vaccinate more than 2 billion children worldwide against measles and rubella since 2001. Host a Lunch & Learn event to learn more about the work the Red Cross does in your community, across the nation and around the world.
