Charity Navigator has lost any semblance of credibility for rating the American Red Cross with 4 stars! I have had 3 first-hand experiences in disaster areas and in each occasion the Red Cross was abysmal in their performance of duties. In one case they stood by while the Salvation Army was working hard in providing for the needs of survivors. In another case, they were noticeably late in responding and then tried to "take over" from an already efficient volunteer network. We try to give annually to several charities but will NEVER donate again to the American Red Cross!!
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
