The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
The Utah Red Cross is part of the largest and most diverse service organization in the United States. We serve more than 3.5 million people and cover nearly 85,000 square miles spanning 29 counties.
We provide food and shelter in emergencies, assist members of our armed forces and their families, teach lifesaving skills, and more. All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.

The Utah Red Cross has been proudly serving Utah for more than 100 years! We deliver services across the state via the Greater Salt Lake Area Chapter; the Northern Utah Chapter; and the Central & Southern Utah Chapter.
The beginning of the Greater Salt Lake Area Chapter can be traced to May of 1898, when Emmeline B. Wells organized a group of 100 Utah women to provide comfort kits and meals to soldiers serving in the Spanish American War. As cavalry and artillery units left Salt Lake City for the war front, Red Cross volunteers filled their knapsacks with home-baked goods and hand-sewn clothing. So began the American Red Cross’ first century of service in Utah.
In 1915, a Red Cross chapter near Ogden (now known as the Northern Utah Chapter) was founded.
Just a short while later, in 1917, a chapter was chartered in Provo (now known as the Central and Southern Utah Chapter).
An office was later established in St. George to better serve residents of Southern Utah.
We remain dedicated to helping Utahns successfully prevent, prepare for, and respond to disasters and emergencies.
