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.
