Ready When the Time Comes is an American Red Cross workplace volunteer program that utilizes the valuable human resources of local businesses across America. The Red Cross trains employees from partnering corporations and mobilizes them as a community-based volunteer force when disaster strikes. The Ready When the Time Comes program was developed in 2001 as a partnership between the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago and Grainger, the national foundation sponsor of the program. Today, more than 13,000 volunteers from 460 corporations and organizations are trained and “ready when the time comes” to volunteer.
