American Red Cross of Mid-South

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Letter from Executive Director, Laura Vaughn – April 2016

laura-vaughnNational Volunteer Week is April 10-17 and your American Red Cross of the Mid-South is honoring its volunteers who give their time to help people in need.

Nearly 600 volunteers serve your local chapter, volunteering at the VA, teaching children how to prevent and respond to a fire, responding to home fires in the middle of the night and so much more. We want to take this time during National Volunteer Month to thank our volunteers for their service. They help us fulfill our lifesaving mission every day, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude for their service.

Last year the Mid-South Chapter Red Cross volunteers provided food, shelter, comfort and hope to over 800 local families who faced emergency situations. They trained thousands of people in lifesaving skills and provided countless services to military members, veterans, and their families.

You can also serve your community by becoming a Red Cross volunteer. Simply go to redcross.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities and how to submit a volunteer application. You can also give me a call at 901.726.1690.
