The Red Cross is a non-profit humanitarian organization which provides assistance to meet the immediate emergency needs of those affected by disasters. All Red Cross assistance to disaster victims is free.


The Red Cross is not a government agency; it depends on public contributions to help others. Gifts support the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross in individual communities, across the country and around the world.
