The American Red Cross played an essential role both during and after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and other parts of the Gulf Coast. Thanks to an outpouring of national support, it was able to raise more than $2 billion and coordinated the efforts of 230,000 volunteers. Still, recovery has been painfully slow for the most affected parts of the city.

Business Roundtable and the American Red Cross announced a new collaboration through the Roundtable's Partnership for Disaster Response. The Partnership is an initiative to galvanize the business community to contribute its vast resources â beyond financial contributions â to accelerate on-the-ground relief and recovery activities following major national disasters. This announcement is timed with National Preparedness Month, a nationwide effort to encourage Americans to prepare for emergencies in their homes, schools, communities, and businesses.
The collaboration includes several activities to help the private and nonprofit sectors work together to strengthen our nation's disaster response system:
-Introducing new communications channels to improve the flow of information and efficiencies between the business community and the Red Cross
-Using the Partnership's Web site â www.respondtodisaster**** â to share companies' first-hand reports from a disaster site with the Red Cross to expedite relief and recovery efforts

Water safety tips from American Red Cross Connie Harvey.
The 1960s and 70s were times of social upheaval. Vietnam began to take center stage in the public eye. At the military's request, Red Cross began a program to provide recreational activities in Vietnam. The organization continued its long tradition of providing emergency communications between soldiers and their families.
Red Cross lived up to its commitment to the people of America "supporting the troops and providing relief to refugees. Domestically, Hurricane Camille roared ashore in 1969 " devastating the Gulf Coast. It dramatically changed the organization's approach to disaster relief as Red Cross recognized the need for a more equitable distribution of aid. By the 1970s, even though Red Cross had been helping and meeting the needs of the American public for almost 100 years, many people felt the Red Cross was not relevant and had lost touch. (SOT: man-on-the-street interviews from "More Than Coffee & Donut's") In the years leading up to the centennial celebration in 1981, Red Cross was transforming itself. The organization called for a national blood policy to standardize practices and end paid donations. Health and Safety services made bold strides in water safety and first aid.

Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast and the devastation it caused in much of coastal Mississippi and Louisiana was unparalleled and unimaginable. Remembering Hurricane Katrina two years later, Americans everywhere recall images of destruction and chaos.
Following Katrina, the Red Cross and its disaster response partners assembled quickly, meeting the immediate needs of 1.4 million families, but the work did not stop there. Understanding the magnitude of the disaster, the American Red Cross promptly launched the Hurricane Recovery Program (HRP) to concentrate on the long-term needs of hurricane survivors.
The Red Cross celebrates 125 years of charity. It was during the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War that Clara Barton first made an indelible impression on America. Amid bullets and exploding shells she did not hesitate to enter the heat of battle to care for wounded soldiers of the North and the South. It was Clara Barton's sense of unwavering compassion that would forever define the spirit of the American Red Cross.
