relies on the donations of time, money and resources from

individuals in the local community, corporate partners and
like-minded foundations to do its work.

Red Cross Services are provided throughout Colorado
thanks to the generous commitment of thousands of local
volunteers who:

Help individuals and communities prepare for, respond to
and recover from disasters;

Teach lifesaving skills to tens of thousands of individuals;

Provide transportation for the critically ill and elderly and;

Offer support to U.S. service members and their families in

And provide lifesaving information to immigrant and migrant communities, promote international Humanitarian
Law and reconnect families separated by war or disaster.
