The American Red Cross is one of the oldest humanitarian organizations in the U.S., dating back to 1881. The organization has provided food, shelter and medical assistance during disasters and wars. The Red Cross continues to focus in the areas of blood collection and distribution, support for the military, help during disasters, and education in the areas of health and safety. Their mission remains the same as in the beginning--helping people in need throughout the United States.
The location is usually in Washington, D.C.
