Are you looking to do something life-changing in your community, work with a passionate team, and help others when it's needed most? Join us!

The American Red Cross is active in Elba, AL, and we're looking for volunteers to help with disaster relief. We help local families that need food, shelter, clothing and other emergency services after their home was lost in a fire or flood. In addition to helping after a disaster, Red Cross volunteers helped in preventing fires by installing smoke alarms at no cost to families.

Join us and volunteer with the Red Cross today! We work with your schedule and we will support you every step of the way. The training includes online courses and response calls. Watch the video below to see Red Cross volunteers in action, as you too can make a positive influence in your community. We work together as a cohesive unit and as one family. Sleeves Up. Hearts Open. All In.
