UPCOMING EVENTS







Red Cross Volunteers Needed

Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer? The American Red Cross is looking for volunteers who can respond to the scene of a disaster (volunteers are called Disaster Action Team (DAT) members). Whether it is a local house fire or a large-scale disaster like a tornado, flood or snowstorm, volunteers are there for the families affected to provide for their immediate needs including lodging, food and clothing. They also provide assistance with mental health and medical needs. Currently, there is one DAT member in Bon Homme County, Connie Allen of Springfield. DAT volunteers must take some training courses to better understand  their role and responsibilities in disaster situations before they can respond to disasters. Most of these courses can be taken online, however, some must be taken in a class room setting. If there are enough individuals in the Bon Homme County area who are interested in becoming DAT volunteers, the Red Cross can host courses locally. After the initial introductory classes are taken, they provide many other training opportunities for their volunteers. These disaster training courses and training exercises are free of charge. There are many other opportunities to get involved with the American Red Cross including helping to organize events or becoming a course instructor. At the American Red Cross, volunteers are essential to their work. The compromise 94% of the workforce. They could not provide service without them. For more information on becoming an American Red Cross volunteer, please contact Summer Geraets at 605-996-3087 or summer.geraets@redcross.org. You can also find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RedCrossEasternSD
