The Red Cross mobilizes the power of volunteers to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies. The Dakotas Region could have just the opportunity you’re looking for from responding to disasters, to supporting your local office or delivering messages to members of our military to connecting families displaced by conflict.

Red Cross volunteers are united by their service and the feeling that in changing others’ lives, their lives are also changed.

We have volunteer opportunities across the region ranging from Disaster Action Teams to office support to community preparedness presenters. If you are interested in volunteering with the Red Cross, get started now by choosing the appropriate link below:
