Serving AR, IA, MO, NE, OK
Find your American Red Cross Serving Greater Iowa chapter. Chapters open shelters during natural disasters to give people a safe place to stay, hot meals, and support from trained volunteers. The organization sends qualified volunteers to disaster sites to help treat injuries and illnesses, replace prescription medications and eyeglasses, and provide emotional support.
The chapters deliver supplies to residents through local distribution centers or through emergency response vehicles that travel to the affected areas. These supplies include meals, water, and snacks. For personal care, they provide items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and shampoo. For home cleanup, they may provide tarps, rakes, shovels, and trash bags.Back to previous
