What we do:
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. Humanitarian services include Service to Armed Forces and Disaster Services.
Why we’re great:
As the leading humanitarian disaster services organization, we work to empower people to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural and man-made disasters. Last year, we assisted 266 families after disaster and installed 761 smoke alarms.
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
We prepare the community before disasters strike, and we're the first ones on the scene when it does. Last year, we provided an average of $630 in financial assistance to each family in the aftermath of disaster, and client satisfaction was 97%.
