Imagine your life being turned upside down by a disaster. One minute you’re relaxing with family — the next, you’re fleeing your home. This happens every eight minutes to families across the country, and your support of the American Red Cross helps ensure they don’t face these crises alone.
During those first devastating hours and beyond, when #HelpCantWait, Red Cross workers are there to provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter and other essentials to people in their time of greatest need.
As a member of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP)/Disaster Responder Program, FOX Weather’s support helps ensure that the Red Cross is ready to immediately meet the needs of disaster survivors nationwide, anytime and anywhere.
The Red Cross will host its eighth annual Giving Day on March 23. It's a 24-hour fundraising campaign uniting thousands of Red Cross supporters across the country to help families affected by disasters big and small across the U.S.
