Group Volunteer Opportunities (GVO) engages multiple volunteers and/or external organizations in ways to volunteer with the American Red Cross as a group. As a one-time event, GVO’s offers a new and exciting way for everyone, Red Cross volunteer or not, to get involved!

Curious about how you might be able to help as a group? Here are some examples:
  • Community Canvassing Team : Connecting communities with preparedness and Red Cross information by canvassing a designated street neighborhood.
  • Home Fire Campaign : Join Team Firestopper and help prepare local communities by installing smoke alarms in at-risk communities while providing residents with vital, lifesaving information.
  • Vehicle & Cot Cleaning : Cleaning Red Cross vehicles and cots required during disasters.
  • Manikin Cleaning : Cleaning Red Cross Manikins used to teach CPR and lifesaving skills.
  • Build-A-Kit : Create disaster preparedness kits for your group or donate to another of your choice (Requires financial contribution required for supplies)
  • Holiday Mail for Heroes : Sign or Sort holiday cards for service men and women with the Red Cross (During October-December Only)
To effectively support groups looking for one-day service projects, all Group Volunteer Opportunities requests require at least 60-day notice from the requested date.
