Support for Arizona

The American Red Cross is currently assisting hundreds of people affected by a wildfire in Arizona.

In Yarnell, Arizona about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix,  the fire spreading rapidly from 2,000 to 6,000 acres in a matter of hours.  A group of 19 firefighters bravely went to suppress the fire, and lost their lives during the effort.  From everyone at the Red Cross, our hearts go out to the families of the firefighters that lost their lives while defending their community.

Red Cross workers are helping people affected by the blaze providing food, water, shelter and mental health services for those affected.  With hundreds of people forced to leave their homes, the Red Cross is operating shelters on both sides of the fire to best help those in need.

 The Red Cross is responding to several wildfires in the West as well as flooding in many Eastern states with food, shelter, relief supplies and emotional support. To support these efforts, please make a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS.  People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
