About the Red Cross
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization- not a government agency- and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

MPARTIALITY: Make no discriminations
