Volunteer Application

Dear Friend,

   Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region.  Each year, more than one million Americans work with the Red Cross as volunteers serving local community needs. Every day, Red Cross volunteers – your neighbors – provide a broad array of vital services to people in need in the Chesapeake Region which includes all Maryland counties west of the Chesapeake Bay except Montgomery and Prince George’s.  (Please visit http://www.redcross.org/dc/washington if you live in Montgomery or Prince George’s counties so you can join the American Red Cross of the National Capital Region.)

   The Red Cross can work with you to provide a rewarding experience to utilize your talents and help you serve your community.  Voluntary service is a fundamental principle of the American Red Cross, and we are grateful for your interest in helping us to serve the people of the Chesapeake Region. We have many volunteer opportunities and more than 90% of our services are delivered by volunteers. 

   Once you submit the volunteer application below, you will receive a system-generated email inviting you to create a profile in our online volunteer database called, Volunteer Connection.  Please follow the system prompts and complete the orientation process so you can begin volunteering with us soon!

   If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at the information below.


In Service,

Molly Pelzer
