The American Red Cross lends a helping hand to those facing some of life's biggest challenges and your help is needed right here at home. The goal of the JOIN THE 1,000 campaign is to ensure the Mid-South is prepared for any emergency. To do this we are recruiting, training, and engaging an additional 1,000 volunteers for the Mid-South Chapter.

Volunteers will work with a Volunteer Specialist and receive specialized training to choose their career path within the chapter. Some volunteer paths available are: Disaster Response Volunteers, Preparedness Education Instructors, Shelter Team Volunteers, and an array of other opportunities. Not only is the personalized training free, but incentives for volunteers who meet a minimum volunteer requirement are also available, like CPR/First Aid/AED training along with a host of others.
We know that there is a direct link between how prepared we are as a community and how resilient the community is. Help make the Mid-South prepared for any emergency that may arise by volunteering today and joining the 1,000.
