Hello, We Are the American Red Cross of Nebraska & Iowa!

The American Red Cross Nebraska-Iowa Region serves the more than 5 million people living in Nebraska, Iowa, three counties in Wisconsin, one county in Illinois and one county in South Dakota.  The Region provides vital services to the area 365 days a year—from responding to home fires in local neighborhoods to teaching first aid and CPR to community groups.

We’re able to provide these services thanks to a corps dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our donors. The American Red Cross puts these donations to good use. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need.

How do we do it? By practicing what we preach: preparedness. We train our volunteers. We plan ahead for the types of disasters that strike in our community. And we train individuals, businesses and community groups so they too, can be prepared.
