Letter from Southeast Tennessee Executive Director, Julia Wright - April 2015

Celebrating Volunteers!

The American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee is celebrating its volunteers and the work they do in the community during April, National Volunteer Month. 

Last year, our volunteers provided food, shelter, comfort and hope to 337 local families who faced home fires and other disaster situations. They trained 1,998 people in lifesaving skills and assisted 238 military members, veterans and their families.

I invite you to sign up to volunteer and be a part of our lifesaving work. We’re looking for diverse volunteers of all ages and skill levels. You can go to to learn more about volunteering with us and how to submit a volunteer application.

If you want to volunteer to help when a disaster strikes our community, download the Team Red Cross app. You’ll receive notifications when Red Cross volunteers are needed in the area. The app can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to

If you are currently a volunteer you are cordially invited to attend out Volunteer Recognition event at Walker Pavilion in Coolidge Park on April 26th from 1-3pm.  Please provide an RSVP to 423-265-3455 or  I extend our sincerest thanks to the 413 local Red Cross volunteers who help us fulfill our mission 365 days a year, 24 hours a day in Southeast Tennessee and across the nation.
