- Be the safety, comfort, and hope for those who are unexpectedly impacted by disasters. Help coordinate basic human needs like shelter, food and clothing so they can begin putting their lives back together.
- Help ensure families don’t have to face tough times alone by lifting up the hearts of those who are unexpectedly faced with emergencies.
People affected by disaster need your support and care! As a Red Cross Shelter volunteer, you'll be part of a team providing a safe place to rest and a path toward recovery. A commitment of a least 14 consecutive days to volunteer for 8- or 12-hour shifts is needed (we'll provide travel accommodations). The hours are long, the work is hard, but the experience will change you forever. Apply or learn more here
ALL EXPENSES RELATED TO TRAINING AND TRAVEL ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF OUR DONORS. THERE IS NEVER A CHARGE TO THE VOLUNTEER.
About American Red Cross - Massachusetts Region
101 Station Landing, Medford, MA 02155, US
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether its one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things. We operate the largest food pantry in New England, we empower volunteers as leaders of the organization, we offer training and support. Whether it is standing with a family on the sidewalk at a house fire to offer comfort and care or it is contacting someone in the armed services who has a new baby, the Red Cross is a gentle presence of compassion and assistance.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
