Support Red Cross Disaster Shelters
Be the Shelter in the Storm.
We’re preparing for another extremely busy disaster season and it’s critical to have a trained, ready volunteer workforce to make sure we can provide relief at a moment’s notice. This year’s wildfire season is already very active and dangerous because of the severe drought and dry woodlands across the west. And experts are predicting we could see 10 or more hurricanes in the next few months.
We need volunteers in shelter support to assist with reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information collection, and other vital tasks to help those we serve.
Shelter volunteers will be able to deploy nationally for 2 weeks where they are needed the most.
The Red Cross will provide all the training you need as well as cover all travel, lodging and food expenses.
