Military service member

The American Red Cross has supported those in uniform since the founding of the organization more than 135 years ago. Today, the Red Cross remains committed to serving the military community at every step — from the time of taking the oath to becoming a veteran and beyond. This Veterans Day, take a moment to honor America’s military members by providing comfort and aid to those who have sacrificed so much.

For a service member or veteran experiencing a difficult hospital stay, support like yours can make all the difference. With your gift of a hospital care kit, you can show veterans and service members across the country that we’re there for them — just as they have been there for us.

Right now, you can support our nation’s heroes with a special hospital care package that includes soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, snacks, books for their kids and more.

Donations are tax deductible, and you can receive a free gift with a donation of $125 or more.

Join the Red Cross in its tradition of celebrating our heroic members of the armed forces. Take the time today to give back to our dedicated veterans and service members.
