Volunteers carry out 90% of the humanitarian work of the Red Cross.

Whether helping one displaced family or thousands, providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran, or teaching others how to respond in emergencies, it’s through the efforts of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.


The East Alabama Chapter of the American Red Cross is seeking volunteers in Chambers County.  We currently have only one volunteer in your area.  This single volunteer responds to local disasters, primarily home fires, as a Disaster Action Team (DAT) member.  We need your help to better serve your community and support your neighbors in their time of need.

Please visit to complete a volunteer application or contact Kelly Ford, Volunteer Specialist, at or by telephone at (334) 235-4758 to learn more.
