• Become a Red Cross Volunteer

Become a Volunteer today!

There is a place, right here in Mississippi, where a total stranger will give you food and shelter when disaster strikes. There’s a place where someone you never knew will help your family prepare for emergencies. It's a place where you can support your community by volunteering or making a contribution. That place is the American Red Cross. When YOU help the Red Cross, YOU help America.

Our vital work is made possible by people like you, who learn how good it can feel to lend a helping hand. Red Cross “everyday heroes” come from all walks of life. They are all ages. Everyone has something special to offer, including you.

All it takes to be a Red Cross volunteer is the willingness to give some of your time to learn skills needed to respond to a disaster. Do not wait another day to find out how good it feels to wear the Red Cross badge. To begin the volunteer process, simply click one of the options below.

Once we receive your volunteer application, a member of the Red Cross Mississippi Region team will contact you to find out more about how you want to give back to our community!
