Some Red Cross volunteers are teachers. They show people how to save a life in an emergency. They help members of the community prepare for disasters. And they teach children how to escape from a burning house.
Some Red Cross volunteers drive elderly and disabled people to their doctor appointments so they can get the medical attention they need.
Some volunteers make phone calls, give speeches, file, type, photograph, write, organize, schedule, and report.
Red Cross volunteers are the BEST volunteers. So during National Volunteer Week, (April 18 – 24) give a Red Cross volunteer a little “Yip” to say “Thanks for everything you do!”
