Image_202302021402

Be a part of our superhero Front Desk Squad and be the first point of contact for clients, volunteers, and partners reaching out to the American Red Cross. As a part of our Operations Team, you'll answer phones and greet visitors while helping with other activities in our chapter office.

On any given day you could help a family displaced by a home fire get emergency assistance or connect the family of a deployed military service member with our Hero Care Network. Or maybe you'll help sign up volunteers for one of our Sound the Alarm events where we install free smoke alarms that help save lives.

Volunteers for our Front Desk squad are needed Monday through Friday during business hours - your time from 10am through 2pm is especially appreciated!

No experience is needed to join our team. If you bring a smile and a willing heart, we'll provide all the training that you need.
