Red Cross Response to COVID-19 in L A County

The Red Cross also strongly urges healthy, eligible individuals to give blood or platelets to help maintain a sufficient, blood supply and prevent shortages.

Urgent Volunteer Request

In Los Angeles County, volunteers are needed to help the Red Cross and its partners respond to the pandemic. Red Cross volunteers are currently supporting partner organizations to address food insecurity brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Assistance is needed with tasks including packaging prepared foods, loading and unloading trucks for distributing meals, and assisting in the setup of points of distribution.
