Every March, we honor those who make the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross possible.
We invite you to join us by attending an event, volunteering, giving blood, learning lifesaving skills or making a financial donation.
The Red Cross is here for you. Please call us at (800) 733-2767 for assistance.

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 New Jersey region.

The humanitarian work that we do at American Red Cross would not be possible without our volunteers. We have a variety of disaster relief volunteer opportunities available, as well as potential positions focused on facility management, health and safety, service to the Armed Forces, and professional specialties like photography, IT, and more.
