Mission Statement

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

Description

Volunteers constitute 96 percent of our total work force to carry on our humanitarian work.

Every year the Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 disasters-including approximatley 150 home fires every day.

About 11 million Americans turn to us to learn first aid, CPR, swimming, and other health and safety skills.

Half the nation's blood supply is collected by the Red Cross.

Among our emergency services for the men and women of the armed forces is the delivery of urgent family messages-around the clock and around the globe.

As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, Red Cross reconnects families seperated by conflicts and disasters around the world through international tracking services and Red Cross messages.
