Resolution: Give of Yourself

Give Time: The Red Cross would not be able to serve the community without the help and support of all its volunteers. Volunteering with the Red Cross is an easy and valuable way to give back to your local community.

Give a Financial Donation: The Red Cross depends on the generous donations of its supporters in order to carry out its mission and charitable work. By donating to the Red Cross you are helping us provide support to victims of disaster, assist in international aid, and prepare the Bay Area for emergencies by teaching lifesaving skills.
