“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”

--Sherry Anderson

This quote is hanging on the wall in the lobby of the Greater Cincinnati/Ohio River Valley building. It was chosen because it’s true. No place are volunteers more valued and appreciated than at the Red Cross. Volunteers are the heart of who we are and what we do, and we invite you to explore and many volunteer opportunities available.
