Red Cross Volunteers

To The Editor:
The American Red Cross Cape Fear Chapter is celebrating its volunteers and the work they do in the community during National Volunteer Week, April 6 - 12.
Last year, our volunteers provided food, shelter, comfort and hope to 513 local residents who faced home fires and other disaster situations. They trained 2,637 people in lifesaving skills and assisted 542 military members, veterans and their families.
They also helped collect 16,370 units of blood from at 495 blood drives in the Cape Fear area.
We want to invite the public to sign up to volunteer and be a part of our lifesaving work. We’re looking for diverse volunteers of all ages and skill levels. Go to to learn more about volunteering with us and how to submit a volunteer application. To schedule an appointment to donate blood, please visit or call 910-254-GIVE
If you want to volunteer to help when a disaster strikes our community, download the Team Red Cross app. You’ll receive notifications when Red Cross volunteers are needed in the area. The app can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to
We want to extend our sincerest thanks to the 400 local Red Cross volunteers who help us fulfill our mission 365 days a year, 24 hours a day in the Cape Fear area.
