Mission Statement

As a Red Cross volunteer, you can help people displaced by disaster, or go into schools and show children how to prepare for a fire or disaster. You can teach Hands Only CPR and First Aid, or go out into the community spreading the Red Cross mission. Most of all, Red Cross volunteers help save lives and what could be more fulfilling than that?
