Experts fear the 2020 hurricane and wildfire seasons may be among the most active we will ever face. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the mission of the American Red Cross continues.

The American Red Cross is developing a team to work in person at a Red Cross shelter before, during and/or after a disaster. We need volunteers ready and willing to deploy to support those displaced in disaster impacted areas.

'Sheltering volunteers support day-to-day activities in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information collection, etc. We are looking for individuals to provide excellent compassionate customer service while observing all safety protocols in a COVID-19 environment.

This opportunity requires the ability to build effective relationships with co-workers and shelter residents, strong written and verbal communication skills, physical ability to stand and/or walk for extended periods, including climbing stairs and can lift/transport supplies up to 20 pounds multiple times per shift, along with availability to complete 4 to 6 hours of training within 7 days.
