One the critical parts of our mission is moving relief goods where they’re needed most. Mike Woods is currently a one-man team in Yuba City, getting supplies ready and shipped off to areas of the state where the Red Cross is helping people affected by wildfires.
If you’d like to volunteer to help Mike, or join the Red Cross in other capacities, please visit redcross.org/volunteer.
Heidi Hammond had to flee her home with only her children and her pets. This meant that she didn’t have key equipment to keep her children safe. The Red Cross was able to provide her with the support she needed to protect her kids.
During times of trouble, you can count on American Red Cross volunteers like Mike Woods to arrive on scene with a smile on their face (though it may be hard to see through the face mask)! Our Red Cross volunteer spent his days knocking on the doors of Butte County hotels to deliver meals to residents displaced by the recent fires. If you’re interested in joining our team please go to http://www.redcross.org/volunteertoday.
The Gold Country Region of the American Red Cross has some incredibly dedicated volunteers! Among them are Heath Wakelee and Mary Prather who don’t let cancer get in the way of helping people who need it most.
