Since its founding in 1881, the American Red Cross has provided vital services in a variety of ways. The Red Cross supports active military members and their families, provides emergency preparedness education, health and safety courses, first aid stations and blood services. And, of course, responds to disasters both locally and around the world.

None of that would be possible without Red Cross volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to serve in various capacities at the Stanislaus County chapter of the Red Cross including disaster response, service to the armed forces, health and safety training, community outreach, disaster preparedness and more. Those who enjoy serving on the front lines, have a gift for teaching, or prefer working behind the scenes, the Red Cross needs volunteers with multiple talents.
