Adopt an Apartment

Sponsors usually adopt an apartment for one calendar year. The apartment becomes vacant about every 2-to-3 months, depending upon varied circumstances. As each resident vacates, they are allowed to take all the donated items with them. However, this then leaves the apartment in need of refreshing and restocking. Typical Apartment Needs: New Twin Sheet Set New Towel Sets New Pillows Brooms & Dust Pans Mops Tall Kitchen Trash Cans & Garbage Bags Toilet Paper Paper Towels Miscellaneous Household Cleaning Supplies & Gloves Pots & Pans Plastic-ware for children Utensils Microwaveable Dishes Floor Mats & Area Rugs The Sponsor Duties: Sponsor groups stay involved by doing light-to-medium maintenance. The types of maintenance the group would be responsible for are: sweeping, mopping, dusting, deep cleaning (kitchens & bathrooms), providing basic apartment needs (*NEW* twin sheets, towel sets and pillows) and personal hygiene items if able. If the group feels so inclined, there may also be painting opportunities for them throughout their adoption. There is always a need for a “handyman” in every sponsor group. Their function can range from tightening screws on a doorknob to changing a light bulb to replacing a cabinet/door hinge or maybe even hanging a painting. The Adoption Process: The sponsor group appoints a contact and provides a phone number and an email address for the group. The contact then fills out a volunteer application and is assigned an apartment. Once the apartment is assigned, if it’s currently vacant, the group can take a tour of the apartment to assess its needs. We will then set up tentative future volunteer dates for the group to come in and refresh the apartment

Help your neighbors. Even those you have not met. Yet.

Disaster Action Teams provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.
