Give the gift of your time — Red Cross seeks volunteers
In this new year, you can be part of something bigger than yourself. Your time and talent are priceless. By volunteering a few hours a week, you can help us maintain our buildings so we can save lives. Our Operations Department is crucial in the success of the Red Cross.
The Red Cross is the largest humanitarian organization in the world, and without the maintenance team and the proper care of our facilities, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. You can help by becoming a facilities team member and ensuring that our mission-critical activities happen without interference.
If this is not for you, we have many more volunteer opportunities available to match your skills. Start your volunteer application today at tinyurl.com/BayAreaRedCross-Volunteer. For questions, email Alexandra.Parker@redcross.org.
