American Red Cross Relief Efforts:
Hundreds of Red Cross volunteers from all over the country are working around the clock to provide safe shelter and comfort to people impacted by the devastating Hurricanes that have hit the United States.
The Red Cross has a large multi-island relief effort underway with government officials and disaster partners to help people impacted by Hurricane Maria’s devastation in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Red Cross is working closely with the Mexican Red Cross to provide humanitarian aid and assistance during large emergencies and is committing $100,000 toward the Mexican earthquake relief effort. More than 2,000 Red Cross volunteers continue to provide humanitarian assistance to communities affected.
The Red Cross has mobilized its second massive hurricane response in two weeks to help people affected by Hurricane Irma. Relief efforts stretch from the U.S. Virgin Islands through Florida to the mid-Atlantic region.
The Red Cross has enough shelter supplies in Texas to support 28,000 people and supplies for an additional 22,000 people are being sent in now. In addition, tractor trailer loads of ready-to-eat meals, comfort kits, kitchen supplies and cleaning supplies are on the ground in Texas. More than 150 vehicles have been mobilized.
Wildfires have a dramatic impact on communities throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington – burning thousands of acres of land and in some cases forcing families from their homes. Red Cross responders work one-on-one with affected residents by providing food, water and relief supplies, replace essential items such as clothing, create recovery plans, and help them apply for government and other community assistance.

Canadian Red Cross Relief Efforts:
Across British Columbia, Red Cross teams have been working to help evacuees from the wildfires by supporting reception centers and group lodging sites with personnel, cots, blankets, shelter supplies, and emotional support. For families who have been able to return home, the Red Cross is also providing clean-up supplies and ongoing assistance to help meet additional needs.
