The Red Cross responds to more than 60,000 disasters in the US every year, providing food, shelter and other critical resources. With large disasters like hurricanes, floods and wildfires increasing in frequency and intensity, the American Red Cross is working to meet the needs of more vulnerable and displaced people around the country.

Through its corporate social responsibility program, HGV Serves, Hilton Grand Vacations is committed to making meaningful impacts across its global footprint through four philanthropic pillars: disaster relief, homelessness, veterans and youth development. This specific donation aligns with the company’s disaster relief pillar and supports its long-standing national partnership with the Red Cross.
†Every eight minutes, the American Red Cross responds to an emergency in the US,” said Eric Corliss, regional CEO, American Red Cross of Central Florida and the US Virgin Islands. †The support of forward-thinking companies like Hilton Grand Vacations is truly extraordinary because they understand the importance of having vital resources in place before a disaster strikes.
