The best way to provide immediate relief to your neighbors facing emergency situations is through a monetary donation. Our disaster assistance programs rely heavily on the generous financial support of citizens in the Minnesota and Dakotas region. Even if you only have a few dollars to spare, your donation to American Red Cross disaster relief will make a significant difference in the lives of those facing disasters. Make a one-time donation today either online, by phone, or by mail, or set up a recurring monthly donation to make an even bigger difference.
We cannot accept donations of household goods or clothing. Please consider supporting us with a financial gift.
The humanitarian work that we do at American Red Cross would not be possible without our volunteers.
