Volunteering for the Red Cross is a great way to do something for your community. What you may not expect is what it can do for you.
Every day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies... whether it's half a million disaster victims or one sick child who needs blood. Our vital work is made possible by people like you, who learn how good it can feel to lend a helping hand. Red Cross "everyday heroes" come from all walks of life. They're all ages. Everyone has something special to offer... including you.
Many volunteers have life changing moments with the Red Cross. There’s a special feeling you get helping someone when they need it most.
You don’t need special skills to be a volunteer. We’ll train you. Many volunteers bring skills from work or personal experience, but others choose to work in completely unrelated fields. We have volunteer openings for people of all skills and abilities.
You can set the pace as a volunteer. Choose your area of work, your hours, and your monthly commitment. And if you want, you can invest the time to advance to leadership roles in nearly every volunteer category.
So contact us today; you might discover a skill you never knew you had, or a way to use your existing skills that you never imagined. Either way, we know you’ll discover that nothing feels better than neighbors helping neighbors.
