The season of growth is upon us! As we head into the spring months, the American Red Cross is working with communities across the nation to "grow" our volunteer numbers to prepare for the upcoming hurricane and wildfire seasons. Join your neighbors in becoming a trained volunteer to support communities impacted by severe weather.
Shelter Support Teams sustain the day-to-day activities within a shelter, which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information, or other areas. Free online training will be provided. If the need arises, volunteers are asked to commit to multiple local shifts of 4 to 12 hours each. For those able to travel outside of their local area, a commitment of at least 14 consecutive days, working 8- or 12-hour shifts, is required.
Responsibilities vary depending on assignment. May include providing support to one or more of the following areas within the shelter: reception registration dormitory feeding information supply Provide excellent customer service to clients Complete the required virtual self-paced training (3.5 hours of training total)
