American Red Cross - Connecticut and Rhode Island Region

  • 11 people are interested

Our disaster action team volunteers provide 24-hour emergency response to local disasters, particularly house fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing.

These disaster action team volunteers meet with individuals and families who have experienced a house fire and provide resources to help the families start to recover. And with hurricane season just beginning, there may be opportunities to take training and participate in national relief efforts.

This volunteer opportunity requires training and is mainly shift-based but there are day-time and night-time shifts as well as weekday and weekend availability.

**We are following all CDC guidance around mask wearing and social distance.

Join us in this unique experience to help out members of your community!
