We’re excited to begin this new adventure as a way to showcase the great work of our Red Cross team right here in Central California. You can look forward to stories, news, tips, and more from Red Crossers throughout or new ten county region. Submissions from volunteers, employees, clients and partners are encouraged, so if you have an idea for a blog, just let us know!
It’s no coincidence that we’re launching this blog during National Volunteer Week. Starting tomorrow, we’re sharing a series of stories to recognize different volunteers in our region who work every day to make Central California a safer and more resilient community.
“A Day in the Life of a Volunteer” will showcase the different roles that volunteers play during a typical day with the Red Cross. From early morning disaster responses to fundraising and everything in between, volunteers make up well over 90% of the Red Cross workforce.
The volunteers featured in this series are real and their stories are based on true events. We hope it will give readers an inside glimpse at the day in a life of a volunteer, and inspire others to find ways to improve their own communities.
Make sure to enter your email address on this page and hit “follow” to get these amazing stories sent right to your inbox. Also take a moment to visit our Central California Instagram account for extra content that you won’t see anywhere else!
We look forward to sharing our Red Cross stories with you, and hope that you’ll join us on this blogging adventure!
