Volunteer at the American Red Cross of the Bay Area do great things every day from helping communities prepare for emergencies, providing training in lifesaving skills, assisting people affected by disasters, connecting families or simply lending a helping hand to members of the community. Our volunteers come from a variety of cultures and from all walks of life. Many want to help after a major disaster, such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Others lend their skills or professional expertise to benefit members of their local communities.
Red Cross volunteers help us create stronger, well-prepared communities. In return, our volunteers receive fulfillment, enrichment, gratification and a spirit of belonging and giving.
