Major Disaster

Since 2016 began, the American Red Cross has responded to a rare spate of massive floods, which have upended thousands of lives across multiple states. From early-season flooding in Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri to rain events pounding Texas again and again. The deluges won’t let up.

For more than a week, a siege of severe thunderstorms morphed into another major flood event, swamping homes and washing out bridges. In hard-hit Houston, rising rivers and creeks prompted approximately 1,000 families to evacuate, and thousands more continue to be at risk as the waters rise. Over the weekend flash floods also impacted homes in Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Through it all, the American Red Cross has been there helping families by providing them with shelter, warm meals and hope in their darkest hour.

More than a dozen people have died so far this year as a result of flooding. We need the entire Red Cross community to come together to help us continue to meet the urgent needs of thousands of families. With more flooding expected, we will continue planning for sheltering and service delivery in the coming weeks.

Home Fire

This years campaign highlights the promise we make when we respond to a disaster.

The promise that people in need won't go through a disaster alone...whether that's a personal disaster like a home fire, or a major disaster that affects whole communities.

The Red Cross is there providing help and hope when people need it most. Our caring volunteers are there to help find a safe place to spend the night, provide hot meals, and offer financial assistance and emotional support to help families get back on their feet.

Every 8 minutes, every day, the American Red Cross responds to a disaster big or small and makes this promise. This year, you can help us keep that promise.

March is Red Cross Month Not All Heroes Wear Capes

The American Red Cross wants to recognize the nation’s Everyday Heroes who in some way help their community by giving of themselves. Help us celebrate and recognize these Everyday Heroes by encouraging the public to uncover their inner hero through volunteering, making a financial or blood donation or taking a Red Cross class in First Aid and CPR.
