The Red Cross is there after disasters big and small to provide families with the support and resources they need to recover. We give emergency assistance to help meet basic needs, and we work with other community agencies and local partners to provide additional resources for long-term aid.
We could have just the opportunity you’re looking for ... whether it's training to respond to disasters, supporting a blood drive, delivering messages to members of our military, or connecting families displaced by conflict, we hope you'll join our mission.
