Originally chartered in 1917 as the Floyd County Chapter and renamed the American Red Cross of Northwest Georgia in 2010 when we combined with the Dalton/Whitfield Chapter and the Murray County Chapter, we have grown to serve 15 counties with a population of approximately 800,000 people. Today the Red Cross of Northwest Georgia is hard at work in our community daily bringing help and hope to neighbors in need. With the same passion and commitment of our volunteer founders, we’re empowering a new generation to prevent, prepare for and cope with emergencies that devastate homes, threaten lives and separate loved ones.

Whatever your reason, the need for blood donors is constant, and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. You'll also feel great knowing you've helped change a life!
