The first Kentucky chapter of the American Red Cross was chartered in 1917. Today, there are five chapters in Kentucky which comprise the Kentucky Region. The Kentucky Region of the American Red Cross serves 116 counties in Kentucky and 3 in Southern Indiana.
The American Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money and resources from individuals in the local community, corporate partners and like-minded foundations to do its work.
Red Cross Services are provided throughout Kentucky thanks to the generous commitment of thousands of local volunteers who:
Help individuals and communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters
Teach lifesaving skills to tens of thousands of individuals
Offer support to U.S. service members and their families in Kentucky and across the world
And provide lifesaving information to immigrant and migrant communities, promote international Humanitarian Law and reconnect families separated by war or disaster.
Become part of the largest humanitarian network in the world—one that reaches into your home community and around the world by making a philanthropic donation. Consider becoming a Ready 365 partner to help make sure the American Red Cross is ready to serve the community 365 days a year. You might also consider sharing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of your products, services or event tickets.
