American Red Cross of the Central Valley

Disasters don’t stop during a pandemic, but neither do we. Join our Virtual Volunteer Fair so you can be ready to roll up your sleeves to help those in need!

Down the street, across the country, around the world; the American Red Cross responds to an emergency every 8 minutes. No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, Red Cross volunteers go wherever they're needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter, and hot meals when they need them most.

Representing more than 90% of the Red Cross workforce, volunteers are the backbone of our lifesaving mission. Never has this been more noticeable than this past year when the Red Cross provided more nights of emergency shelter than any point on record due to an unprecedented wildfire season in conjunction with the economic fallout from the pandemic. It’s through the efforts of ordinary people, like you, that we can do these extraordinary things.

Join us on Tuesday, March 10th at 11:30am-12:30pm for our Virtual Volunteer Fair to learn how you can be a part of our team! RSVP now at redcross.org/ccrvolunteerfair

Whatever your schedule and interests, whether you want to volunteer from home or in the field, locally or nationally, working with kids or adults, together we can find the right fit for you!
If you have any questions, please email alexa.maldonado@redcross.org
