Experts predict 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, as it must, because of amazing volunteers and individuals. Please consider joining us in a temporary volunteer position NOW - and get fully trained - before disasters strike. Most disaster deployments call for a 2-3 week commitment and ability to work multiple shifts on consecutive days. Together, we will be ready when the time comes!
