red cross volunteer connection

Today more than ever, volunteers (especially bilingual volunteers) are needed to work with the Hispanic community. Volunteer and discover how your knowledge, skills, abilities, and enthusiasm can bring you an enriching experience. Opportunities to volunteer and donate blood for Spanish speakers vary by local office and Red Cross blood services region, but there are more opportunities every day. Opportunities are also offered for bilingual volunteers who wish to help their local Red Cross develop Spanish services for their communities.
