American Red Cross of Alaska seeks volunteers to help throughout September with the "Buy a Blanket" campaign

Organization: American Red Cross of Alaska

Volunteer Coordinator: Caitlyn McLaughlin

Contact Information: 463-5713, mclaughlinca@usa.redcross.org

Organization Description: Governed by volunteers and supported by community donations, your American Red Cross of Alaska is part of a nationwide network of nearly 800 locally supported chapters dedicated to saving lives and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Volunteer Opportunity: Help support the American Red Cross of Alaska and Fred Meyers in September's "Buy a Blanket" campaign! The American Red Cross of Alaska is actively seeking volunteers to help as greeters, to spread the word about safety, and to share information about preparedness. The job is easy - spend only two hours on a Saturday (between 9/11/10 and 10/02/10) welcoming shoppers and handing them a card with a simple request to "Buy a Blanket." This virtual gift ("buy a blanket" at the register) then helps local families get started with rebuilding their lives after a house fire or disaster. Please contact Caitlyn McLaughlin or visit www.buyablanket.org for more information.
