Red Cross Volunteers Needed Now
If you have the time to train and go out on a two week deployment, you can make a significant impact as a Red Cross volunteer.
- Shelter Help Needed: We need volunteers to help staff shelter reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information collection and other vital tasks to help those we serve. We have both associate and supervisory level opportunities available.
- Disaster Health Services Support Needed: Licensed Health Professionals are needed in shelters to provide hands on care, health education, health assessments and additional health related support. Both Service associates and supervisors who can lead a team are needed.
A two-week deployment commitment is needed after training. If you are interested in helping, please go to redcross.org/volunteertoday or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a short phone screening.
Email is preferred due to high call volumes; however, you may also call
612-871-7676 and Press 5 to be connected to Volunteer Services.
