Description
The Jewish Community Center has agreed to be a Red Cross Volunteer Resource Center for future possible times of need.
At this training session, you will learn about working in shelters and sign up to be a spontaneous volunteer in the future.

About the Organization:
The Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet. Although the Red Cross is not a government agency, it is an essential part of the response when disaster strikes. We work in partnership with other agencies and organizations that provide services to disaster victims.
