Do you have a passion for helping people?
The American Red Cross is on the ground, working around the clock to provide food, comfort and emergency support to those affected by major disasters all over the country. Locally, the most common disasters to which Red Cross volunteers respond are right here in our own community - fires and floods.
There are 2 to 4 home fires on average, daily in the Nebraska-Iowa region. Volunteers are needed locally to provide comfort food and shelter. We need individuals to work with disaster-impacted families, or be a dispatcher to get volunteers activated to respond. We provide needed training and you can sign up for shifts that meet your schedule. All that you need is a heart to help others, access to a computer, a phone and good communication skills. Currently, Red Cross disaster responders provide assistance virtually.
