Guided by our mission, volunteers define, direct, and deliver critical services to families in need every day. Join us and use your talents to support disaster survivors, teach children and families to save lives, or assist our military members and their families in times of crisis. Through all of our programs, Red Cross volunteers help change the lives of approximately 100,000 local residents each year.

If you are already a Red Cross volunteer, log in to Volunteer Connection or email us to access volunteer opportunities, sign up for shifts, log hours, or access local volunteering information.
