Team Red Cross: volunteer via this free mobile app

Have you ever wanted to volunteer for the American Red Cross when a disaster strikes in your community? Thanks to the new app, Team Red Cross, you can sign up to volunteer from your mobile phone!

When a disaster strikes, the app will give you real-time information on where and how you can assist your local Red Cross chapter. You can access overviews of the various jobs available, and volunteer orientations can be completed directly on your phone to prepare you for your mission. The app allows you to be on top of the latest disaster needs in your community!

Other features of the app include:
  • Details on the current need for financial and blood donations
  • The ability to raise awareness by sharing your Red Cross activities and achievements through social media
  • Form teams with other friends and family members who use the app
It’s never been easier to get involved with the Red Cross in critical moments! You can download this app for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Be sure to visit the American Red Cross site for a list of other available apps.
