Red Cross volunteers work year-round and help victims of fires and other disasters.

"You can step out and say 'Hey, how could I make a difference in my community, my city, my town, my county, or in my case my region.’ So, we'd love to have you at Red Cross," said Red Cross of Southeast Texas executive director Chester Jourdan. "There's an opportunity for you there. There's a role there for you. There's a place there for you."

The non-profit listed the following volunteer opportunities as most needed.

  • Blood Donor Ambassador
  • Blood Transportation Specialist 
  • Disaster Action Team
  • Shelter Services 
  • Disaster Health Services Team
