American Red Cross

Who We Are

Mission: 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.

Across the nation your American Red Cross respondes to more than 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the U.S., ranging from fires to hurricanes, floods, eathuakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents and explossions.

Locally, we are headquartered in Bay City, and have been helping our neighbors since 1911. The American Red Cross Rio Colorado Chapter covers Colorado, Matagorda, and Wharton counties. Through the generous financial donations and support last year we were able to provide assistance to 30 families affected by local home fires, taught life saving skills to more than 7,300 individuals, and provided emergency assistance to more than 38 service members and their families.
