WAYNE COUNTY, July 11, 2016 – Red Cross volunteers serve our neighbors in need every day. They’re on the scene of home fires. They’re assisting life-saving blood donors. They’re working with military members and veterans.
The American Red Cross is in need of volunteers in Wayne County, specifically on Seymour Johnson Airforce Base. Use your time and talent to change a life by becoming a Red Cross volunteer.
On Seymour Johnson, the Red Cross is searching for volunteers to work in Koritz Clinic to assist with phone calls and emails; volunteers in the pharmacy to greet customers; and outreach volunteers to engage community organizations.
Volunteers on Seymour Johnson must already have base access before volunteering with the Red Cross.
In the Wayne County community off base, the Red Cross is seeking day-to-day volunteers that can be trained to be part of our Disaster Action Team; blood services volunteers to serve as donor ambassadors; and office volunteers to assist at the Wayne County office.
“Our volunteers are the lifeline of the community. Red Cross volunteer opportunities allow residents to make a powerful and positive difference and help their neighbors in need,” said Kathleen Pate, volunteer specialist for the Red Cross. “If you are compassionate and dedicated, we need your help at the Red Cross.”
Volunteers make up 96 percent of the Red Cross workforce. These volunteers represent a variety of age groups and skill sets and the Red Cross provides free training to its volunteers.
To become a volunteer, apply online at www.volunteerconnection.redcross.org or contact Kathleen Pate at 919-861-1660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
