How You Can Help
One of the best ways to support the work of the American Red Cross and help disaster victims is through a financial donation. It is the fastest and most effective way to assist families affected by a disaster and provides for the most flexible use of resources. Because there is no way of knowing what spontaneous individual donations or unsolicited collections of items will consist of, the Red Cross cannot accept individual donations of items such as food, clothing, or furniture.
