Hello and Good Day!!!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the American Red Cross of the Greater 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 Greater Chesapeake Region which includes the Delmarva Peninsula and all Maryland counties 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.  We have many volunteer opportunities and more than 90% of our services are delivered by volunteers. We are truly in awe of what the Red Cross Volunteers accomplish, and are so grateful that you are interested in joining this team!

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.  (Be sure to check your junk mail in case the email goes there).  Please follow the system prompts and complete the orientation process in a timely manner so you can begin volunteering with us soon!
