How you can make a difference
American Red Cross assistance is made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.
When you help the American Red Cross, you help America...and your neighbors. Your gift may help a family of five who lost their home to fire find temporary shelter and regain their lives more quickly. It can make help us deliver a message to a soldier serving overseas about the birth of his baby daughter back home. It can ensure that we are there when disasters strike, and even beforehand to help individuals and families prepare and stay safe.
There are many different ways you can choose to support the American Red Cross.
- Your Local Red Cross Chapter: Support the humanitarian needs of people in Central Illinois, be it in disaster preparedness, disaster response, First Aid and CPR training, or disease prevention.
- National Disaster Relief Fund: Help provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to people affected by disasters across the country.
- International Response Fund: Help those affected by the West African famine, tsunamis and countless other crises around the world with a gift to provide supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.
Change a life... starting with your own.
