American Red Cross of Nebraska-Iowa Region

Do you have a passion for helping people?


The American Red Cross is on the ground, working around the clock to provide food, comfort and emergency support to those affected by major disasters all over the country. Locally, the most common disasters to which Red Cross volunteers respond are right here in our own community - fires and floods.

There are 2 to 4 home fires on average, daily in the Nebraska-Iowa region. Volunteers are needed locally to provide comfort food and shelter. We need individuals to work with disaster-impacted families, or be a dispatcher to get volunteers activated to respond. We provide needed training and you can sign up for shifts that meet your schedule. All that you need is a heart to help others, access to a computer, a phone and good communication skills. Currently, Red Cross disaster responders provide assistance virtually.

Are you 18 years or older and ready to help? Complete your online application at redcross.org/dat

Description

Since our founding by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to serving people in need. We received our first congressional charter in 1900 and to this day we are tasked by the federal government with providing services to members of the American armed forces and their families as well as providing disaster relief in the United States and around the world.

Today, as throughout our long history, the Red Cross depends on generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support our lifesaving services and programs.
