Providing immediate emergency support during disasters and offering communication and support to members of our Armed Forces is no easy task. The American Red Cross depends on volunteers to fulfill our mission.
Here in Kentuckiana members of Disaster Action Teams are on call day and night to offer assistance and support to those affected by home fires. In the Louisville Area Chapter Community Emergency Services—better known as the Call Center—volunteers man the phones 24/7 to make sure each emergency is responded to and every soldier enduring a family emergency makes it home.
During March is Red Cross Month, the Louisville Area Chapter gives extra thanks these men and women that make up 96% of Red Cross workers. But our work force is always looking for new members.
Become a Red Cross volunteer today and learn how you can make a difference in your community. Contact your local Red Cross chapter or visit redcross.org for more information.
