Your Local Red Cross…We’re Here to Serve You!


Armed Forces Emergency Services

The American Red Cross communicates emergency messages between military personnel and families who reside in our area.  When families experience a birth, death, serious illness or other emergency, members of our community can rely upon the American Red Cross to relay emergency messages to their loved ones who serve in the armed forces.

Biomedical Services - Blood Drives

Did you know that one pint of blood can save as many as three lives? As the nation’s largest blood supplier, the American Red Cross works diligently with hospitals across the country to supply lifesaving blood and tissue. If you are interested in giving the gift of life by donating blood, you can schedule an appointment on-line at:  www.givebloodgivelife.org 


Interested in sponsoring/hosting a Blood Drive?  Call our office at 630-443-8844 & ask for Emily.


Disaster Assistance

The American Red Cross responds to disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, house fires, and other natural disasters that cause human suffering and require assistance. Trained Red Cross volunteers are able to provide emergency items such as food, clothing, diapers, baby formula and prescription medications to families who have lost their homes and personal belongings due to a disaster. All disaster assistance is given free of charge thanks to generous donations from our community.
