American Red Cross Club

Mission of the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
The American Red Cross empowers ordinary people to perform extraordinary acts of service. Our blood donors are ordinary people – high school students, factory and office workers, business executives, parents and grandparents, and people from every walk of life.  But they share one thing – a generous spirit, a desire to give back to their community and help others.  Blood donors play an integral role in the delivery of modern healthcare. Many life-saving medical treatments and procedures involve blood transfusions and would not be possible without a safe and reliable blood supply.

American Red Cross Lines of Service Delivery: 

  • Disaster Services
  • Preparedness and Health and Safety Services
  • Biomedical Services
  • Service to the Armed Forces
  • International Services


We affirm our commitment to the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and add to these principles five values that are essential to our continued success in meeting our mission.
  • Compassionate
  • Collaborative
  • Creative
  • Credible
  • Committed
