    Now through December 1st:

    The American Red Cross is urgently recruiting volunteers for our Shelter Cape Cod campaign to ensure that this winter, Cape Codders are prepared to help Cape Codders weather the storms by training to serve as Shelter volunteers.

    With the growing threat of more severe and frequent storms, more people rely on the Red Cross for a warm, safe and dry place to shelter during storms when the power goes out or homes are damaged.  The need for compassionate volunteers has never been greater.  The Red Cross and Barnstable County Emergency Management Agency invite you to become a Red Cross trained Shelter volunteer.  The goal is to recruit and train 216 volunteers, just like you, by December 1st.

    Our Red Cross Sheltering Teams play a critical role when local disasters hit. Shelter volunteers support the day-to-day activities within a local shelter which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information or other areas within a shelter. Free online training will be provided. If the need arises, volunteers may be asked to commit to local shifts of 4-12 hours each while the shelter is open. 

    Please become a Shelter Worker on Cape Cod! If this is something you would be interested in, you can learn more at If you have questions, reach out directly to or call 1-800-564-1234.
