Red Cross Volunteer Opportunities

The East Tennesse Red Cross is currently in great need of facility and vehicle maintenance assistance. These are essential to the work of the Red Cross and would not require too much of your time to complete. Even if you could just give one day a month to assisting with our vehicles and/or facilities, it would be greatly appreciated.

Facility Maintenance--This position will assist in making sure our office (we would love your help with our Oak Ridge and Maryville offices as well if you are able) is being run well inside and out. Someone in this position would need to be comfortable with fixing a variety of things from installing new door stops, to changing light bulbs, to caulking windows. This is a very important position as we want to convey an image of professionalism to everyone who comes into our building. The Knoxville building alone is 17,000 square feet so your help is greatly appreciated and needed!

Vehicle Maintenance--This position will help to manage our sizeable fleet—vehicles & trailers—throughout East Tennessee. We have vehicles at four area offices and trailers placed throughout our thirteen-county chapter. This is a great chance to put your vehicle skills to use! At this point, we are looking for someone to coordinate and assist with routine trips to the shop, or to transport trailers, but this role could change depending upon individual skill level. This is another very important position because when the fire happens--day or night--our vehicles and trailers must be ready to roll!

If you can help in any way, please contact:
