• Mid-Illinois Red Cross, Disaster Volunteers Hugging

Each year more than one million Americans serve as Red Cross volunteers serving local community needs… helping people in emergencies, providing half the nation's blood supply, teaching first aid and CPR courses, delivering emergency messages to members of the military, organizing programs for the elderly and for youth.

The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization led by volunteers. Red Cross services could not reach the citizens of Champaign, DeWitt, Douglas, Macon, Moultrie, piatt and Vermilion counties without the dedication of our wonderful volunteers.

Red Cross volunteers work directly with people, serve on boards of directors, serve as managers, advisors, and provide behind the scenes support.

Be a Red Cross volunteer! Helping others provides a valuable service and helps you feel good about yourself. Our Chapter will work with you to provide rewarding experiences, opportunities to utilize your talents and provide training to help you serve your community.
