ORGANIZATION: Central Panhandle Chapter American Red Cross

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 485 people are interested

In coordination with Bay County Emergency Management, the Central Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross will begin collecting contact information for those local citizens who would like to volunteer to assist should cleanup operations become necessary. Those interested should be aware that volunteers will not be in contact with hazardous materials or wildlife. Since our shores are not presently affected by the oil spill, volunteers may or may not be called upon.
