The Philanthropy Office is looking for a detail oriented person to come help our small but mighty team as we ramp up for our busiest time of year. Primary duties will include data entry for upcoming events and special projects as assigned. 

Ideally we would like someone who can come in on Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday from 9am until noon. Experience with Excel preferred. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about non-profit fundraising and special events. Must be able to start ASAP (this week if possible).

URGENT: Disaster Responders Needed

Are you available to deploy with the American Red Cross? 

California is on fire, and we need the help of our community leaders to respond and share awareness, as we help those who are evacuating in Northern California. 

Last night more than 1,000 people stayed in shelters with an additional 715 in hotels. As we open more Red Cross shelters, we need workers. This is a very real need, right now.  

People need our help. The workforce on the ground needs our help. Now is the time to sign up and volunteer. Please feel free to circulate this email among your members and community, as we will continue recruiting individuals to serve in Northern California.

If you would like to learn more about volunteering as a Red Cross Disaster Responder during the Northern California fires, please join us for a Pre-Deployment Briefing via Zoom, on Monday, August 24th at 2 p.m. PST. Click here to RSVP for the briefing.

It is in these times that we show who we are and our dedication and belief in the mission. It is in these times that we demonstrate how we exemplify our values. 

Let's show Californians that the Red Cross is there for them. 

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” Elizabeth Andrew
