In 2015, we entered into a national partnership with the American Red Cross, pledging $1 Million dollars over the next four years to support their efforts in preparing for and responding to natural and human disasters. Our partnership actively engages AvalonBay's associates and residents in a variety of Red Cross activities including blood drives, our annual Community Preparedness Week, CPR classes, volunteer opportunities and more. See below for ways you can get involved with the American Red Cross in your region!

Sound the Alarm 2017

This fall, Red Cross volunteers and their partners will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high risk neighborhoods nationwide. Sound the Alarm installation and fire safety events will take place in more than 100 communities across the country, providing a lifesaving service in their quest to reduce death and injury from home fires. Join us as we help Red Cross Sound the Alarm this fall!
