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 with winds anywhere from 74 to 111 miles per hour.

Compassionate and committed individuals are needed to support sheltering efforts this disaster season. Shelter volunteers support the day-to-day activities within a shelter which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information, or other vital areas within a shelter. Free online training will be provided.

If you can travel outside your local area, a commitment of at 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.

Help ensure families don't have to face tough times alone by lifting up the hearts of those who are unexpectedly faced with emergencies. To apply or learn more, visit: https://volunteerconnection.redcross.org/?nd=lead&h=192&p=1357515

Safety First! Our need for volunteers is constant and our guidelines reflect the latest CDC and local-government COVID-19 safety recommendations.
