Red Cross Informational Session

Red Cross Informational Session Online

As one of the nation’s premier humanitarian organizations, the American Red Cross is dedicated to helping people in need throughout the United States and, in association with other Red Cross networks, throughout the world. We depend on the many generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support our lifesaving services and programs.

Clara Barton and a circle of her acquaintances founded the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C. on May 21, 1881. Barton first heard of the Swiss-inspired global Red Cross network while visiting Europe following the Civil War. Returning home, she campaigned for an American Red Cross and for ratification of the Geneva Convention protecting the war-injured, which the United States ratified in 1882.

Today, the supporters, volunteers and employees of the American Red Cross provide compassionate care in five critical areas:

  • People affected by disasters in America

  • Support for members of the military and their families

  • Blood collection, processing and distribution

  • Health and safety education and training

  • International relief and development

Join us to learn more about the American Red Cross and ways we support the community and how you can get involved.
