  • Club Red is an organization for young professionals who support the mission of the American Red Cross.
  • The American Red Cross works hard to prepare our community in times of emergency. One way we ensure preparation is through our CPR, AED, and First Aid classes. In 2009, over 37,000 Triangle residents were certified in First Aid, CPR and AED.

  • The Red Cross serves as a gateway between deployed military personnel and their families back home. Should a family emergency occur while a loved one is deployed, the Red Cross works to contact that service man or woman and inform them of the situation and bring them home. Last year, the Triangle Red Cross educated 26,437 ready-to-deploy service men and women about this program and actually aided 954 active military personnel in communicating with their family.

  • Mission of the American Red Cross The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization, led by volunteers, that provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. It does this through services that are consistent with its Congressional Charter and the fundamental principles of the International Red Cross movement.
  • Our reach is global. Our focus is local.
  • Wake, Johnston, Franklin, Lee, Chatham & Warren Counties
  • Disaster Relief Every Fire, Flood, Hurricane or Tornadoe
  • The Triangle Area Chapter of the American Red Cross helped more than 357 families recover from local disasters in 2010. We provided more than 10,836 nights of shelter locally to those whose homes or apartments were made unlivable due to fires in 2010 .
  • Service to the Armed Forces
  • Each year the Red Cross assists nearly 3,000 Triangle military families financially and emotionally. Local military families turned to us more than 1,200 times last year for support . We provide emergency communication, financial assistance, and counseling services for military families.
