How and when did the organization get started?

The American Red Cross, Ohio Buckeye Region, was granted a charter on July 3, 1916. The Chapter’s roots reach to the great flood of 1913, which struck this and other cities in Ohio and Indiana. Thousands lost their homes and were injured, and more than 500 died. The national Red Cross came to the aid of central Ohioans, and Columbus residents were inspired a few years later to form their own chapter to help in future emergencies.
