American Red Cross

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 American 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.

If half of Americans living within two miles of a Coinstar® machine donated just $1 in spare change to the American Red Cross, it would raise more than $65 million to support American Red Cross lifesaving services in communities nationwide. See the change your donation provides.
