Red Cross Month: The perfect time to volunteer

   March 15, 2012 10:32 am    1

 

Here’s a little known fact: March is Red Cross Month.

That means it’s the perfect moment to make your move and lend your volunteering services.

On its website, the Red Cross said that 97 percent of its workforce is volunteers.

The Red Cross matches volunteer’s skills with their open positions.

According to the Red Cross’s website, some opportunities include:

Disaster Action Team (DAT) Members, Disaster Dispatchers, Client Caseworkers
Provide relief to victims of disaster and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Service to the Armed Forces Caseworkers
Work with local members of the military to ensure the delivery of emergency communications.

International Services Caseworkers
Help people living overseas in war-torn countries look for family members thought to living in our community.

Preparedness Education Instructors

Speak to school groups and community organizations on the topic of the Red Cross preparedness.

To get involved, contact Ally Sokolowski by telephone at 833-0942 ext. 233 or e-mail at asokolowski@erieredcross.org
