Local chapter of the American Red Cross issues appeal for volunteers

The American Red Cross of the Mahoning Valley is actively recruiting volunteers to administer services to local families in need. Available volunteer opportunities include the following:

Disaster action team members: Disaster team volunteers assist with local fires, floods, tornadoes, transportation accidents, hazardous material spills, and other disasters. The Red Cross provides free basic disaster training to volunteers.

Office administrative help: Volunteers are the voice of the Red Cross, and many opportunities exist in the areas of public relations, communications, and clerical work. The Red Cross provides free training in office duties.

Health and safety instructors: Instructors teach and certify participants in courses such as First Aid, CPR, water safety, HIV/AIDS, bloodborne pathogens/preventing disease transmission, child care, babysitting, and pet first aid. The Red Cross provides training for a small nominal fee, and instructors can later apply to become certified paid instructors.
