Disaster Services:

Red Cross volunteers have responded to 12 incidents and expended $5,222.29 in disaster services from July 1 through September 19.


Volunteers from across the four counties continue to provide disaster services to those in need.  In July, volunteers responded to three local disasters and provided food, shelter, and clothing to those in need. 

Monthly disaster team meetings allow for volunteers to gather to discuss recent disaster responses, learn new disaster operation techniques or practice on current ones, find out about other Red Cross volunteer opportunities and network with other volunteers.  If you are interested in becoming a Red Cross disaster volunteer, you are invited to attend a Disaster team meeting in your area or contact the chapter office for more information.  All meetings start at 6:00 PM.

The PA Heartland Chapter is part of the Northwestern PA Region of the American Red Cross.  With the Greater Erie County Chapter as the lead, the Corry, Warren County, Allegheny Region, ARC of McKean and Potter and the PA Heartland work together to ensure that Red Cross services are available in the most efficient and caring way possible.

Red Cross is a United Way and United Fund Participating Agency and RSVP Station.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
