Red Cross Request for Volunteers

I got this from Dana. Please note -- This is not a Fairfax County CERT sponsored event. Anyone who would like to volunteer would be doing so as a private citizen under the auspice of the Red Cross. Please contact Greg if you can help out!

The Red Cross needs people to help with processing information from our clients who evacuated from Hurricane Gustav. The Red Cross will provide mileage and meals for volunteers who can help, and we will provide lodging from those who are not within 20 mile commuting distance. We are looking for 38 volunteers to assist the center. Ideally, we would like people to work either a 7AM to 3 PM shift or a 3 PM to 11 PM shift for three weeks. However, if someone can only to commit to one or two weeks, we may be able to use them to handle the large number of claims for assistance.

If anyone is interested in this opportunity, please contact Greg Suddeth at suddethg@usa.redcross.org.
