Red Cross of the Tri-States Volunteer Orientation Sessions

American Red Cross Volunteer Orientation!

WHAT: Volunteers are central to the work of the Red Cross in the Dubuque area and in communities across the country, as on average, the Red Cross has 15 volunteers for every one employee. These volunteers are people in action—whether providing comfort to a family whose home has been washed away in a flood or getting an emergency message to a member of the military whose father is critically ill.

The Red Cross is also encouraging people who have been thinking about volunteering to take the next step. Red Cross volunteer opportunities include responding to local and national disasters, assisting with special events, helping with administrative tasks such as answering the phone and more. The hours are flexible and the benefits intangible.

With the approach of spring comes the potential for severe weather. Red Cross volunteers are called on to respond locally and nationally when disasters strike, and there are many ways to get involved!

The American Red Cross is holding a volunteer information session for anyone interested in learning more about becoming a Red Cross volunteer. Red Cross staff will be on hand to give a brief overview of the various volunteer opportunities available, and answer any questions potential volunteers might have.

Join us for a FREE one-hour session to learn how you can get involved.
