Every eight minutes the American Red Cross responds to a disaster somewhere in the United States.

This year 3,874 people in Central Maryland alone looked to us for disaster assistance. We didn?t let them down-- providing food, clothing, shelter, household necessities, emotional support and the tools they needed to begin their lives anew.

Thanks to your donations, your Red Cross has the resources to get immediate help to people coping with the devastation and loss of their homes, their belongings, their peace of mind.
