Agency Name: Canadian Red Cross Society
The Canadian Red Cross mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world. All the organization’s programs and activities are guided by the principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. These principles allow the Canadian Red Cross to provide help immediately to whomever needs it, wherever they are, whatever their race, political beliefs, religion, social status, or culture.
How The Community Can Help:
If you are looking for opportunities to give back to your community, meet new people, and have new experiences, volunteering with the Red Cross could be the right place for you. The Canadian Red Cross Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP) loans medical equipment, on a donation basis, to people recovering from surgery, illness or injury. The HELP program is looking for volunteers in Client Services to act as frontline contact for in-person and telephone inquiries, Equipment Maintenance and Cleaning volunteers to check equipment for damage and perform routine maintenance and Delivery Assistants to assist the HELP Driver with delivering and picking up the equipment. Alternately, you could join the Red Cross as a Disaster Management volunteer and provide social services support to the community in Lethbridge and surrounding area before and after disasters. Volunteers receive training on how to respond and assist with urgent emergency needs (food, clothing, shelter, communication) following floods, fires and other events. To apply or find out more about any of these volunteer positions, visit http://www.redcross.ca/volunteer/apply-now or join the Red Cross on Thursday, April 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (registration is encouraged by calling Penny at 403-327-7117). Emergency Preparedness Week (May 7 – 13, 2017) is an annual event that takes place each year during the first full week of May. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces, territories and partners. This national event is an opportunity for the Canadian Red Cross to remind families to plan for emergencies. For more information on how to take care of yourself and your loved ones during an emergency, visit www.redcross.ca/prepare
