During an emergency

Red Cross does not accept or distribute goods donated by the public to communities affected by disasters. This is because we cannot store or transport the donated goods.

Red Cross appreciates people's generosity to want to help people affected by an emergency. The best way to do this is by donating money because this empowers people to buy what they need the most and support their local businesses.

Making a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery supports the work that Red Cross Emergency Services does every day in Australia and wherever we are needed around the world.
