We are so excited to show you the new American Red Cross mission statement:
“The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.”
We love how the new mission statement includes you! Our volunteers and donors are the foundation behind The East Georgia chapter, and this powerful statement emphasizes all that you guys do as a part of our family. Please note our mission and service delivery has not changed, but the new statement is a great enhancement.
There is also a new vision statement and list of values.
Our Vision statement explains exactly what the Red Cross does, including disaster relief, preparedness, blood services, armed services, and training. It also points out the importance of all of the Red Cross services for our communities around the world.
Our Values reaffirm our commitment to the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Crescent Movement and add on five values. The values are compassion, collaboration, creativity, credibility, and commitment. These values are necessary for success in our mission statement.
