Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether it’s 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, the vital work is made possible by people like you.
There is an ongoing effort to establish Red Cross presence in Hope and Hempstead County. Such presence is only made viable through a strong volunteer base. Volunteers are needed to be a part of a local response team. Please consider volunteering. Opportunities to volunteer elsewhere come as a bonus, but you are not required to travel. Training, supplies, and identification badges and vests are provided for volunteers.
Find out more. Come talk to us on Thursday, February 27th, 6pm, Hempstead Hall, UACCH. We will meet you in the Hope Suite. Those who wish to volunteer can register to do so at this meeting.
People with various backgrounds, talents and skill levels are needed. Opportunities include but are not limited to: Volunteer Management, Disaster Services, Disaster Action Team (responds to single-family fires), Disaster Preparedness, Nurses ( a cornerstone of The American Red Cross), Social Media, Clerical, Public Affairs, School Clubs( allows youth and younger adults to support the Red Cross mission), Health and Safety, First Aid Team, Special Events, Language Translators, Group and Corporate (religious groups, civic clubs, organizations and businesses members and employees – there are many ways your group can lend their time and skills to the Red Cross).
