The American Red Cross of Massachusetts announced today that the Cape Cod and Islands Chapter will include Plymouth and Bristol Counties and will now be called The American Red Cross of Cape Cod, Islands & Southeast MA.
“I look forward to working more closely with the volunteers and staff at our Red Cross locations in Bristol and Plymouth counties and am very happy to have them become a part of our Chapter, “ said Cape Cod, Islands & Southeast MA Executive Director Hilary Greene.
The American Red Cross of Massachusetts is part of the largest and most diverse service organization in the United States and serves 6.6 million residents of the cities and towns of Massachusetts. We provide food and shelter in emergencies, operate the largest food pantry in New England, teach lifesaving skills, train nurse’s aides and certified nursing assistants, serve members of the Armed Forces by supporting them and restoring their family connections, and more. All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.
Volunteers constitute about 95 percent of the American Red Cross workforce, and our volunteers train in specialties such as shelter management, mass feeding, technology and casework. They are ready to deploy here or anywhere we’re called to serve in the U.S.
About the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross provides key services such as disaster relief, service to armed forces and their families, lifesaving health and safety courses, over half of the nation’s blood supply, and helps reconnect families separated internationally by war and disaster. The ARC is not a government funded agency and therefor relies on the benevolent donations of our supporters in order to continue our goal of alleviating human suffering by mobilizing the power of volunteers.
