Today, our community will come together for NWIgives, and we need you to join us. It’s 24 hours of unprecedented nonprofit giving.

If you love taking care of people and saving lives, then you love the American Red Cross, serving the people of Northwest Indiana every day since 1917.

Your support has a daily impact in everything we do: collecting, testing and distributing 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply; providing emergency communications and support to military families; training people in health and safety to respond to emergencies; international services reuniting separated families; working to eradicate measles worldwide; preparing for, preventing and responding to deadly home fires and other emergencies every day.

We're trying to raise $10,000! That will provide shelter, food, clothing, and other critical assistance to up to 40 local families displaced by home fires.

— Gordon T. Johnson, executive director, American Red Cross of Northwest Indiana Chapter
