How You Can Help

Please note that the Red Cross is unable to accept non-monetary donations such as food and clothing because of storage and transportation requirements. Financial donations are the most efficient way for our organization to meet the emergency needs of individuals and families who have lost their homes to fires and other disasters. Below are some ideas on how you can help.

Host a Special Event
During times of disaster or great need, our local community often responds through organizing group fundraising events or campaigns. Please be advised that hosting an event may require a considerable amount of work on your part. You must determine the date, location, and logistical details and be responsible for all promotion and implementation.

Examples of community fundraising events

  • Host a benefit party/concert.
  • Host a silent auction benefit.
  • Donate a portion of your business proceeds to the American Red Cross.
  • Collect donations from employees or customers

The American Red Cross has restrictions and requirements regarding the use of our logo and does not participate in door-to-door fundraising of any kind. In order to be officially recognized as a community fundraising event by the American Red Cross, you must receive written authorization to do so in the form of a fundraising agreement signed by a Red Cross representative.
