24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the American Red Cross is responding to disasters large and small.
Holiday Mail for Heroes
Holiday Mail for Heroes offers corporations and community entities the opportunity to provide blank holiday cards with a stamp on each envelope to give to members of the Armed Services staying at a military medical facility. This unique program was developed in direct response to service members who, during their stay at Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir, are unable to purchase holiday cards to send to their families across the country.
The American Red Cross offers a variety of event services and presentations. Our volunteers, programs and services reach thousands of people with disaster preparedness materials and other lifesaving information.
The Red Cross provides disaster education presentations to over 29,000 individuals in the community a year to help them prevent, prepare, and recover from disasters or other life-threatening emergencies. Our partnership with Gallaudet also allows us to provide special preparedness materials for the visually impaired.
We could have just the opportunity you’re looking for ... whether it's training to respond to disasters, supporting a blood drive, delivering messages to members of our military, or connecting families displaced by conflict, we hope you'll join our mission.
