Every day, the American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
We have prevented and alleviated suffering, one day at a time, one community at a time for nearly 140 years.
In that time, we have served millions of people living in small towns and big cities across Michigan, the United States and around the world.
365 days a year – the American Red Cross is ready to help. When you join the Ready 365 Giving Program, our premium membership group, you enable us to provide comfort and hope when it’s needed most.
“Red Cross volunteers and staff serve communities across Michigan, providing comfort and care to those that need it most every day. Please join us.”
Leslie Lambert, Chief Development Officer, American Red Cross Michigan Region
