When you give to the American Red Cross, you help our community's most vulnerable and most needy. An average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need. Donations are used to provide food shelter, emotional support and other assistance, as well as the vehicles, warehouses and people that make relief possible. All of our expenses are fully transparent and can be reviewed here.
