Central CA: Service to the Armed Forces Team Member

Our Service to the Armed Forces volunteers help provide critical services with a caring touch wherever and whenever needed — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year — to serve military members and their families at home and around the world. Red Cross volunteers help military families communicate with their loved ones and facilitate their return home to deal with emergencies on the home front through our Hero Care Network, which is available online, by phone, through our mobile app or in person. Red Cross volunteers help prepare for, cope with, and respond to the unique challenges facecd by military members and their families. If you are someone with strong listening skills and the ability to work with culturally diverse populations, you can help provide a critical link for families during emergency situations and provide hope to our nation’s heroes and their families.
