VOLUNTEER

Red Cross volunteers are people who wake up in the middle of a cold winter night to help a family forced from their home by a fire, teach people how to be safe and save lives, staff blood drives to assist in the process of collecting lifesaving blood donations, and keep the Red Cross operating every day.

A great way to find out more about Red Cross chapter volunteer opportunities is to attend a Changing Lives program.  Please email Eileen Ryan or call (309) 743-2170 ext. 125 if  you would like more information.
