VOLUNTEER-BECOME AN ARCRA LINK & HELP ARC RETIREES

12/29/2020 2:15 PM | Anonymous

Do you have time for a rewarding volunteer position helping Red Cross retirees? “Links” take week-long “shifts” once every six weeks and check for voice mails once each day. When there are messages from members, (an average of 4 per week), the Link will refer to a Program Guide and help the retiree with issues related their pension, medical benefits, Association business and other issues. So summarizing; four cases calls every six weeks!

Retirees who worked disaster or SMF/SMI cases are excellent candidates, but anyone with an interest can handle the simple requirements. In addition to committing the time, Links need basic computer skills and a willingness to gradually learn more about benefits, ARCRA, and other challenges we’re facing as retirees.

Former ARCRA President Michael Carroll is working as a Link and shared: “I hope that I made a difference when I was in ARCRA leadership, but after I’ve helped a retire resolve an issue as a Link, I know I have! It’s very rewarding and often the best part is just talking with someone who may be a little lonely.”
