As the largest humanitarian organization in the United States, the American Red Cross depends on volunteers to accomplish the organization's mission: providing relief to victims of disasters and helping people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. In general, the Red Cross provides disaster relief and preparedness, international tracing, messaging to members of the Armed Forces and their families, health and safety classes, blood donations and much more. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
Mission: The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its Congressional Charter and the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross Movement, will provide relief to victims of disaster and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.
