Today, more than 1.2 million people volunteer with the Red Cross nationwide, and the ratio of Red Cross volunteers to paid staff is 36 to 1. One in every 200 Americans is a Red Cross volunteer. As a Red Cross volunteer, you'll have the opportunity to network with others, strengthen your community, gain valuable experience and gain that volunteer gratification feeling of helping others who need it the most.

In the American Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast Region, we like to say "volunteering is the best job you will ever have and not get paid for it." Essentially, when it comes down to it, Red Cross volunteers are neighbors helping neighbors. With the help of our dedicated volunteers, the Red Cross is the preeminent provider of life-saving services, including disaster preparedness, emergency social services, health and safety training and in some areas, local non-emergency transportation.
