The American Red Cross is closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and preparing to carry out our lifesaving mission in the event of any possible disruptions, as well as supporting public health agencies to help communities prepare.
Our need for volunteers is constant and continues to evolve as we navigate this health crisis. Please rest assured that we are working with public health officials to help keep local communities and our volunteer safe. Volunteer opportunities include supporting blood donations and delivering much-needed services to your community. We even have a wide variety of remote (work-from-home) opportunities available.
The American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood and platelet donations amidst coronavirus uncertainties. You can make an appointment to give blood or platelets at RedCrossBlood.org.
You’ve got friends, school, work, family, and a bunch of other responsibilities. So why spend your valuable free time volunteering with the Red Cross?
When you’re a Red Cross volunteer you’re part of the world’s largest humanitarian organization. You can experience the personal and professional benefits of channeling your energy to help improve the lives of people in your community and around the world. We have multiple volunteer opportunities across the U.S. to engage a new generation of young humanitarians.
