Ready 365 members make a difference in Southeastern PA communities

Nearly every second of every day, the American Red Cross is needed—to provide a warm blanket to home fire victims, to ensure life-saving blood is available to a mother giving birth, and to arm communities and individuals with preparedness training. The generosity of Ready 365 members during the 2020 fiscal year made a lifesaving difference for people in our community and beyond.  

The following companies were proud supporters of the Ready 365 program during fiscal year 2020, and helped the Red Cross prevent and alleviate suffering down the street, across the country and around the world 365 days a year:
