Hurricane Ida caused major damage along the Louisiana coast. Our friends at the American Red Cross are on the ground helping those in need. The fastest way for you to help people affected by disasters, like this storm, is by making a gift to Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift is a commitment to helping people in need, and every single donation matters.

  • Financial donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small. Visit, call 800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
  • For those interested in helping people specifically affected by this storm, we ask that they write “Hurricane Ida” in the memo line of a check and mail it with a completed donation form to the address on the form or to their local Red Cross chapter.
  • For those in need. You can download the Free Red Cross Emergency App for access to shelter locations, real-time information and safety tips. The Emergency app is available in app stores by searching for the American Red Cross or going to

It’s important to remember that responding to disasters is a team effort and no single organization can do it alone — this is particularly true in this current environment.
