Red Cross needs volunteers to help people impacted by disasters

09/22/2020 10:56 AM | Anonymous

The American Red Cross is looking for volunteers to assist people being impacted by major disasters across the country. Red Cross retirees with their background, experience and knowledge of Red Cross are volunteers who can hit the ground running.

Volunteers are needed for two-week shelter work assignments.  Volunteers with licensing in the medical field are also needed.  

The Red Cross is currently setting up additional shelters in hurricane and fire disaster impacted areas.  The greatest need is to have shelter workers.  To help keep safe distances in the shelters during the pandemic, shelters are typically larger, spaces out facilities like gymnasiums or convention halls.

Based on our Red Cross experience, we know the disaster recovery work will continue for at least two to three months.
