In that effort, we are asking if any volunteers regardless of line of service, are willing and able to deploy in support of hurricane/wildfire shelter operations. Shelter volunteers will provide assistance for disaster clients, supporting the day-to-day activities within a shelter which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information, or other areas.
In order to keep our clients, volunteers and staff safe in a COVID environment, we are strictly following the guidance from the CDC and local public health authorities. We are mitigating risks by putting in place multiple protocols including limiting the number of individuals inside a given shelter, social distancing, face coverings and regular health screenings.

Thank you again for your dedicated support of the Red Cross and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
