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 serves the more than 4 million people living in Nebraska, Kansas, and three counties in Southwest Iowa that are part of the Omaha metropolitan area. The Region provides vital services to the area 365 days a year—from responding to home fires in local neighborhoods to teaching first aid and CPR to community groups.

We’re able to provide these services thanks to a corps of more than 3,000 dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our donors. Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work.

How do we do it? By practicing what we preach: preparedness. We train our volunteers. We plan ahead for the types of disasters that strike in our community. And we train individuals, businesses and community groups so they too, can be prepared.
