This Web site has news on what the American Red Cross is doing in America and around the world. It also has information on disaster services (for making donations), Red Cross projects, how to volunteer, and where you can donate time, money, or blood.

The American Red Cross is one of America's main emergency response groups. It also offers many other services, such as community services for the needy, support for military members and their families, and educational programs that promote health and safety. But the Red Cross is probably best known for its blood drives and international relief programs.

The American Red Cross is also part of a worldwide effort that provides care to the victims of war or natural disasters. This group always aims to prevent and relieve suffering. The Red Cross is not a government agency. And it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
