Responding to Disasters
Every year disasters affect communities across the United States and around the world. Supporting our Associates, Customers, and neighbors in times of need has always been important to us, which is why the Ross Stores Foundation supports the American Red Cross. The Red Cross has the knowledge, expertise, and resources to quickly and efficiently help communities affected by all types of disasters.
In recent years, the Ross Stores Foundation has donated to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, powering the organization’s response efforts for hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and more. In 2020 our contributions ensured that the Red Cross could respond quickly to the hundreds of wildfires that burned across the country, with several taking place near our Stores, Distribution Centers, and Dublin Corporate Office, as well as to Hurricane Laura, which brought extreme winds and heavy rainfall to Louisiana and other parts of the Southeast.
Through the years, our support has helped the Red Cross provide shelter, meals, mental health services, and many other types of immediate relief in the aftermath of disasters, mainly in the United States.
