The American Red Cross of Scioto Valley is strengthening efforts to recruit new volunteers who are interested in helping their fellow Ross County citizens in times of emergency.

A special informational meeting has been scheduled to answer questions and invite residents to consider joining the ranks of Red Cross volunteers, who now make up 94% of the organization’s workforce.  The meeting is set for March 4th between 6pm- 7:30pm at 181 North Bridge Street in Chillicothe.

Prospective volunteers will learn about a variety of opportunities available - from disaster relief work to helping in the office, plus many other roles.  They’ll also get a chance to ask staff and other volunteers about their experiences and learn about the training required for different volunteer positions.
