Volunteering

The American Red Cross, DuBois Chapter is always looking for people who are interested in using their special gifts and talents to support its mission. You can choose how much or how little you can get involved. Maybe you could help out with a Red Cross event once a year, or would like to be on a committee that meets every other month. Perhaps you are interested in teaching and have three hours every couple of months to volunteer teach a community health and safety class. Maybe you like working with people and could spend a couple of hours a month helping with a blood drive or manning a booth at a Red Cross Event.

If you are looking for a leadership role, consider chairing a committee or submit your name for consideration for a seat on the Chapter Board of Directors. Our Disaster Action team is always looking for individuals willing to get help during a disaster. Training is required for Disaster response so please contact us for more information if this interests you.

Contact the chapter office for more information on how you can become a Red Cross volunteer. The DuBois Chapter of the American Red Cross looks forward to hearing from you.
