Message from CEO
On behalf of the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey, I welcome you to our
web site. I invite you to explore the site to learn more about our chapter vision, our programs and services, and how you can make a difference within the community.
Our chapter is governed by volunteers and supported by community members.
We are a humanitarian organization dedicated to saving lives and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
When local house fires take place within our community, our volunteers and personnel are always there to ascertain the immediate needs of the victims and provide emotional support, food, clothing and other related items.
When large groups of people are temporarily displaced from their homes, the American Red Cross responds by opening and operating shelters.
We want you to take comfort in the fact that we are ready to respond at a moment’s notice when help is needed.
Recently, we launched a sweeping new national effort entitled “Together We Prepare” to prepare our country for a disaster or emergency having national or local impact.
Through the “Together We Prepare” campaign, the Red Cross is encouraging community residents to join in a grassroots effort to make sure central New Jersey is better prepared, should disaster strike, by doing five simple things:
make a plan, build a kit, get trained, volunteer and give blood.
With the possibility of war, terrorist attacks, natural disasters and everyday emergencies, being prepared takes on a new importance; it can help save lives.
I hope you will enjoy navigating through our web site as you learn more about our involvement in the central New Jersey community and how you can support our charitable endeavors.
If you have questions or comments send them to us. Come back and see us often.
We’ll keep you up to date about what we’re doing to create a safer community for all.
CEO, American Red Cross of Central New Jersey
