Red Cross Seeks Volunteers



The American Red Cross is seeking additional volunteers throughout the northern Nevada area. Red Cross volunteers do things like provide initial assistance to those displaced by disasters, set up evacuation centers when necessary, teach local residents, businesses, and government officials how to be better prepared for any kind of disaster, and much more.

It’s very important to have volunteers in rural communities as well as in the Reno-Sparks and Incline Village cities. This allows the Red Cross to better fulfill its humanitarian mission of quickly helping people in need anywhere in Nevada.

“Volunteers make up 97 percent of the Red Cross work force and they all help out in different ways,” said Executive Director Zanny Marsh. “Call our office and we will work with you to figure out how to best use your talents. We’ll also give you many opportunities to try new things and develop new skills along the way.”

Volunteers over 18 years old can sign up here: http://rdcrss.org/1rJGZN5 and Volunteers under the age of 18 can sign up here: http://rdcrss.org/1UeylaJ
