This summer, turn your compassion into action when you volunteer with the American Red Cross.
Communities across the country count on the Red Cross every day. The need remains critical and
constant during the summer months. From helping people effected by disasters, like home fires and
floods, to supporting the collection of lifesaving blood, you can make a difference. Ninety percent
of our workforce are volunteers who are inspired to give back. We can’t do it without you!

Disaster Action Team Member

Every day The American Red Cross responds to approximately 190 house fires across the country. Because of volunteers like you, we are able to respond to the devastation a house fire can bring within 2 hours of receiving the call that a family is in need.

We are actively recruiting for volunteers who want to be part of our Disaster Action Teams (DAT) in Iowa County. DAT members respond to local disasters within 2 hours of notification and directly help people affected by disasters by providing food, shelter, essential reliefs supplies, and hope. Full training provided by The American Red Cross - Wisconsin Region.
