The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether its one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.
The American Red Cross has so many varied opportunities for volunteers. As a Disaster Action Team Member I respond to disasters that range from local residential fires to floods, wildfires, tornado/hurricanes...all types of incidents that can cause someone to be displaced from their home. I teach fire safety to children and adults, install smoke detectors and actively recruit new volunteers. Whether you can give one day or thirty days of your time, there is a job for you. There are volunteers who work the office, sheltering, feeding, warehousing, distribution, reunification, health services, mental health services, spiritual care, disaster assessment, technology, driving emergency response vehicles, working with government agencies, community partnerships, in-kind donations, the experience is limited only by what you want to do personally.
