Local American Red Cross in Need of Disaster Response and Community Outreach Volunteers

Allegheny Region Chapter Actively Recruiting Interested Community Members

All across the United States, American Red Cross volunteers make a positive impact in their communities. From assisting disaster victims and teaching community preparedness to working with millions of blood donors, volunteers donate their time and talents to carry out the organization’s humanitarian mission.

As a nonprofit organization, the Red Cross relies on its strong volunteer network to sustain its vital work in local communities throughout the country. With a low number of volunteers, the local Red Cross—serving Clarion, Crawford, Forest and Venango counties—will actively recruit interested residents this month.

The organization is always in need of individuals to fulfill various volunteer roles. However, this May, the local Red Cross will recruit for the following positions:

• Disaster Responder: disaster response volunteers work with victims on-site, assisting them with their immediate needs and following-up on their long term recovery plans.

• Community Outreach Volunteer:  community outreach volunteers educate the public about the Red Cross and its five key services. Volunteers provide this education through community presentations and tabling events, among other activities.

• Office Support Volunteer: office support volunteers will assist the local chapter with day-to-day administration duties.

For more information on how to help in the community, contact the local Red Cross at 814-677-2024 or 1-888-733-5603.
