CAT’s goal is to educate the community on who the Red Cross is and what we do, so everyone knows about our services, not just in their time of need.

Our Community Awareness Team is stepping out into the Central Ohio region. We attend fairs, festivals and parades in our area to teach “Red Cross 101.”

One of the goals of CAT is to let the community know who the Red Cross is and what we do. We want to make everyone aware about the vast number of services the Red Cross provides and let them know we are always there for people, not just in their time of need.

Most importantly, the ultimate dream of CAT is to build and strengthen relationships with the people around us.  If you are planning a community event or know of someone who is, let CAT know.

The Community Awareness Team is full of passionate volunteers who want to make a difference. If you are interested in joining CAT and getting out into the community,  fill out a volunteer application and select CAT as a top choice at your volunteer orientation.
