Every eight minutes, American Red Cross volunteers mobilize to help people in their darkest hours.
To ensure we are ready to respond to the unimaginable, the Red Cross is in a constant state of steadfast preparation: training volunteers and citizen responders, stocking warehouses with supplies and coordinating with community partners.
But before any of this can happen, we must get there.
While they seldom show up in headlines, our fleet of community emergency vehicles are on the road every day, making our lifesaving work possible. Without reliable vehicles…
• Red Cross volunteers couldn’t reach families whose homes have burned.
• Lifesaving blood would never make it to hospitals.
• Shelters wouldn’t be stocked for those who’ve lost everything after a major disaster.
...and we need your help fueling our mission.
To ensure our volunteers are equipped with safe, reliable transportation to be there when and where they are needed, the Red Cross has a proactive fleet management program. In Kansas and Oklahoma, more than 20 vehicles face retirement in the year ahead due to age, mileage, wear and tear.
We invite you to be a part of this solution, supporting our promise to be there when help can’t wait.
Your gift will also serve as a visible reminder of your dedication to the Red Cross and our communities as the vehicles travel each day.
