The American Red Cross North Mississippi Chapter
Students from the University of Mississippi volunteer with the American Red Cross during the annual Big Event.
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The ultimate goal of the American Red Cross as an organization is to achieve positive health outcomes and create a more resilient community.
United Way of Oxford & Mississippi helps to fund their Disaster Services Program, which responds to victims and meeting their disaster-caused needs, helps to stabilize families by providing in-depth casework and returns them more quickly to economic self-sufficiency, and continually strengthens their capacity and the capacity of communities for disaster response, recovery and readiness.
