American Red Cross
The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that...
...all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope;
...our communities are ready and prepared for disasters;
...everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products;
...all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and
...in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.
There is a wide variety of opportunities depending on your interests.
Currently, our biggest needs are for the following volunteers:
- Blood Donor Ambassador: Enhance the experience of donating blood by warmly welcoming blood donors and providing customer service. Our volunteers engage with blood donors by greeting, registering, answering questions, providing information and support through the recovery process.
- Disaster Action Team: While big hurricanes and wildfires get the most news coverage, smaller disasters are no less devastating to the families affected. Most of the 60,000 emergencies that the Red Cross responds to each year are smaller disasters like home fires. Disaster Action Team volunteers help comfort and support people in your community by meeting any immediate needs such as food, shelter, clothing or supplies and connecting them to long term recovery services. We supply all the training!
