Ohio River Valley in need of volunteers

Portsmouth—April 3, 2018- Residents of Adams, Brown, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike and Scioto Counties are encouraged to take the first step toward making a difference in the community by attending an open house on Tuesday, April 17 to learn more about becoming an American Red Cross volunteer.
The Red Cross relies on generous volunteers who give their time and talent to help fulfill the agency’s lifesaving mission. 90% of the Red Cross workforce are volunteers and the Ohio River Valley Area is in desperate need of adding to their ranks.
At the open house, prospective volunteers will learn about various opportunities within the Red Cross that appeal to different skills and areas of interest. New volunteers can work in any of the following areas:
• Biomedical/Blood Services
• Disaster Services
• Services to the Armed Forces (SAF)
• International Services
“The benefits of becoming a Red Cross volunteer are immense,” said Debbie Smith, Ohio River Valley Executive Director. “Not only are you serving your neighbors when they need you the most, but you are also meeting new people, networking with community leaders, and learning new skills.” She continued, “It’s also a good way for young people to build their resumes and earn community service hours required for graduation.”
