The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of volunteers,
employees and generous donors share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around
the world, through five key service areas: Disaster Services, Service to the Armed Forces, Health & Safety
Services, Blood Services and International Services.
The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on the donation of time by volunteers and the
generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
