American Red Cross News: Stock An Emergency Response Vehicle

Clubs and Organizations

Annual Giving Day
March 27, 2024

After a disaster, families will face some of their darkest moments. That’s why it’s so important that they see an American Red Cross emergency response vehicle (ERV) on the horizon, staffed by highly trained volunteers and stocked with relief supplies.

Red Cross ERVs are packed with much-needed food, water and other critical supplies, like hygiene products, that often can’t reach residents any other way.

It costs $25,000 to stock just one ERV — and we only have our emergency response vehicles ready to go whenever they’re needed because of your generous support. Please, will you give now so that we can stock our ERVs with essential resources like cleanup kits, blankets and other relief items to those impacted by disasters like storms, floods and home fires?

This Red Cross Month, in honor of our 10th Annual Giving Day, help deploy a fully stocked emergency response vehicle to hard-hit communities after a disaster.

James, no other organization or charity delivers relief at the scale of the Red Cross - and for many of the 20,000 people we assist every day, our emergency response vehicles have become a symbol of that compassionate relief.

During this important month of giving, we’re counting on this community to help us continue providing disaster relief at this incredible scale — so will you make a gift today to help us be there for those facing their most challenging moments?


With a donation of $125 or more this Red Cross Month, you’ll receive an exclusive Indoor Weather Station* as a small token of our gratitude.

Thank you for helping us to be there for those impacted by disasters - wherever and whenever we’re needed.
