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.


Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether its one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things. Join a team of 4000+ regular volunteers in the Los Angeles Region to deliver services to local communities daily, weekly or monthly.

I got to go to several worthwhile events: workshop, exploring a site for a workshop, annual luncheon, took workshops as well. Was good for having a place to go to. Did alot of computer work and calling prospective volunteers.

Requires much paperwork and data to go through and in the end I couldn't even go
