Giving a Gift of Goods and Services
The Red Cross discourages individual donations of food and used clothing, but will work with other relief agencies to make these items available.

Under certain circumstances, the Red Cross does accept corporate contributions of goods and services that are needed during a disaster relief operation. The best way to assist the Red Cross with donations of goods and services is to explore the possibilities long before disaster strikes.
