What We Do

The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope; our communities are ready and prepared for disasters; everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products; all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.

Residents affected by the storms can receive assistance with recovery planning, health services or mental health support by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Trained Red Cross Volunteers are working this series of emergencies across Nebraska and Iowa.  If you would like to become a trained Red Cross volunteer the first step is to submit an application at www.redcross.org/volunteer.  The application process can take a few days and requires your authorization for a Background Check. Once your Red Cross application is complete, you will be contacted about your volunteer interest and referred to the appropriate department for necessary training.
