The American Red Cross, a humanitarian Organization led by volunteers and guided by its congressional charter and the fundamental principles of the International Red Cross movement, will provide relief to victims of disaster and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. The Lubbock County Chapter of the American Red Cross was chartered on August 8, 1917 by President Woodrow Wilson. Many other county chapters on the South Plains received their charter around the same time. Over the years the Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dickens, Garza, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lynn, Terry, and Yoakum County Chapters merged with the Lubbock County Chapter to form the South Plains Regional Chapter. Hale, Floyd and Motley Counties are not officially a part of the South Plains Regional Chapter, however the South Plains Regional Chapter is tasked by the American Red Cross to ensure that the needs of those communities are met.
