Everything the American Red Cross does depends on the needs of the people that we serve and we could not be there without the generous support of the community. Since being founded in 1881, the Red Cross has been a consistent lifeline for people when they need us the most. The depth and breadth of our services – whenever and wherever they’re called for – is unmatched by any organization, charity or non-profit in the world. By supporting the Red Cross, you are there for hundreds of people who face emergencies in our region a year and help as they rebuild their lives. Last year our region responded to over 1,200 disasters in which 5,500 people were given emergency assistance. We installed over 6,400 smoke alarms making families in our community safer and educated over 7,800 elementary students in disaster preparedness through the Pillowcase Project.
Each year the American Red Cross in Eastern Pennsylvania conducts a number of signature events throughout the Eastern Pennsylvania Region that would not be possible without the generous support of our community and sponsors. We welcome you to come out in support of these events as money raised goes back into the many services we provide to the local community.
