American Red Cross Serving Central Texas
The Red Cross is the premier emergency-response organization in the U.S., providing disaster preparedness information to more than 2.8 million people and bringing help and hope to people affected by nearly 70,000 disasters each year.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds, and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
Every day, the Red Cross provides care to people in need. With hundreds of chapters across the U.S., and along with our global Red Cross partners, we comprise the world’s largest humanitarian network.
Our volunteers and staff help people when they need it most -- after a disaster strikes, whether it’s a hurricane affecting thousands or a single home fire; when a hospital patient needs lifesaving blood; or when a military family needs emergency assistance.
With your support, we can put food and water into the hands of people who have lost everything, help a person in need of CPR or first aid, connect members of our armed forces to their families, and provide lifesaving blood to people with urgent medical needs.
