Become a Volunteer

Over the last couple weeks we have seen devastating disasters across the country. These disasters affect all aspects of life and require an extensive amount of assistance. The American Red Cross is here to provide all types of assistance but we could not do it without our volunteers. We need you!  Becoming a volunteer is easy and can be extremely rewarding.

  • Served more than 1.7 million meals and snacks with the help of community partners.
  • Opened more than 200 shelters and provided more than 17,000 overnight stays.
  • Handed out more than 1 million relief items like hygiene kits, mops, brooms, tarps, shovels, work gloves and coolers.
  • Provided more than 39,000 health and mental health consultations.
  • Deployed more than 700 emergency response and other disaster vehicles to areas affected by floods, wildfires, and tornadoes.
