Become an American Red Cross (ARC) Disaster Response Volunteer! This is a long-term commitment that would involve training in an area you choose: client casework, damage assessment, or mass care. Trained ARC volunteers would then be able to assist with local and national disasters as well as local house fires. This training is a valuable skill that you can use to help with disasters anywhere in the U.S. Learn more at our Make a Difference Day Project on Saturday, October 27 from 10am-2pm at the Rural Action Trimble Office. This is an introductory orientation to ARC.
