Established in 2011, this designated fund benefits the American Red Cross of Marion County. It was established by the local board of trustees and numerous friends of the organization to support operations in the Marion area.
The American Red Cross of the Ohio Buckeye Region serves 4 million residents in 45 counties from Toledo to Columbus, down to Marietta. They are involved at the local community level every day, helping people prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. The American Red Cross is a volunteer-driven relief movement and the go-to organization for blood donation collection, First Aid training and certification programs, military family support, and international emergency services.
The Marion office is part of the American Red Cross of North Central Ohio and includes, in addition to Marion County, Crawford, Morrow, and Union counties. The local office is located at 1849 Summerset Dr. in Marion and can be reached by calling (740) 725-9141.
