365 days a year—the American Red Cross is ready to help

Ready 365 Giving Circle Members

Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for the family struck by a home fire. We provide cleanup supplies to the couple whose basement was flooded. We give the child who has lost everything the immediate psychological care she needs and a toy to call her own. Once basic needs are met, we begin guiding each family through the next steps to recovery.

The American Red Cross, Eastern Pennsylvania Region responds to over 1,200 disasters each year—a majority of these are home fires.  A home fire can strike anywhere, anytime. Fires often leave families without their homes and personal belongings and in many cases, cause serious injury and even death.

In October 2014, the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign which is a multi-year program aimed at reducing fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent.  Teams visit homes and install free smoke alarms while educating each family on fire safety.

We are able to do this with the help of our generous partners.  Businesses throughout the region who value the local impact and global reach of the Red Cross, join as Ready 365 Giving Circle members.  These companies have a commitment to our mission and are ready to help save lives- 365 days a year.

For over 100 years in Eastern Pennsylvania, we have prevented and relieved suffering, one day at a time serving thousands of people across our footprint and will continue to do so for the next 100 years.  From small towns to large cities, wherever people live, they have one thing in common—they know where to turn when disaster strikes.

Thank you to our Ready 365 partners:
