Each volunteer story features real volunteers and their stories based on true events.

During Volunteer Appreciation Week the Red Cross Central California Region celebrated the dedication and passion of volunteers with a series on the new blog called "A Day in the Life of a Volunteer." Each volunteer story features real volunteers and their stories based on true events. Together, the series showcases a full, typical day for volunteers at the Red Cross. From disaster response to fundraising and everything in between, volunteers make up over 90% of the Red Cross workforce.
