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).
Once you submit the first part of the volunteer application (below), you will receive a system-generated email prompting you to complete the application process in our online volunteer database called Volunteer Connection. (Be sure to check your junk mail in case the email goes there). There you will complete an online orientation, read/agree to Red Cross policies, initiate a background check, update your profile with emergency contact information, and select an area of interest. Please follow the system prompts and complete the orientation process in a timely manner so you can begin volunteering with us soon!
