Volunteer in Your Community

Volunteers power our humanitarian mission.

From serving meals to disaster victims to helping with blood drives, volunteers contribute throughout our community. Our volunteers teach CPR and help soldiers arrange travel home for the birth of a child. They help us prepare for disaster and recover from the aftermath.


Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of the Red Cross. Nearly 1,300 volunteers support the Eastern Missouri Region. They contribute a varying number of hours – from very infrequently to nearly full-time. Please consider giving your time to the Red Cross.
