The Central Appalachia Region of the American Red Cross serves 77 counties in WV, VA, MD, OH and KY through 5 local chapters. We provide the following services to our community:
Central Appalachia AmeriCorps VISTA Project
The American Red Cross Central Appalachia Region Disaster VISTA project seeks to increase overall volunteer capacity across the region.
West Virginia Flood Response
Read about our disaster relief work during the flood of June 2016.
When disaster strikes, the Red Cross is ready to provide a place to sleep, warm meals, clothing, emotional support and hope to those affected.
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.
We collect blood every day from donors who help ensure a safe supply of blood when it’s needed.
We offer training in first aid, CPR/AED, swimming and water safety, care giving and more.
Service to the Armed Forces
We relay urgent messages between U.S. service members and their families through our global communications.
For emergency assistance for families of armed forces members call 1-877-272-7337.
