Join us today and discover one of the best ways to spend your summer.

Critically needed volunteer roles in your community:

  • Disaster Response Duty Officers: Volunteer from home to dispatch local Red Cross volunteers to meet with families impacted by home fires and other disasters so they can provide temporary relief such as a safe place to stay, food and clothing.
  • Disaster Health and Mental Health Services: Use your professional skills as licensed healthcare providers to deliver hands-on care to people recovering from disasters.
  • Shelter Support: Help at a shelter during a large disaster either locally or across the country by welcoming and registering residents, serving meals, setting up cots, distributing blankets and personal hygiene kits, and providing information and other assistance to people in need. Training and travel costs are covered by the Red Cross.
