Disaster Response Update

Right now, the American Red Cross is responding to two large-scale disasters in the East and West: the raging wildfires in California and the devastating floods in West Virginia. Thanks to people like you, we are there with immediate relief, providing emergency shelter, warm meals and comfort for those who need it most.


We’ve already assisted more than 14,000 families who have been impacted by large disasters with casework support in 2016, and with your support, we’ll help even more in the weeks and months ahead.

Donate now to Disaster Relief so the Red Cross can continue to provide help and hope in the wake of disasters big and small at a moment’s notice.

Nearly every eight minutes, the Red Cross helps a family who has lost everything to a home fire or other disaster. With your support, we can be there once again to make a difference.

Thank you so much in advance for your support of Disaster Relief.
