The Muskingum Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross is looking for new volunteers.

Volunteers with the Red Cross make up 94% of the work force. In order to spread the word on the countless opportunities available, the Red Cross will be holding a meeting at their building on 7th street Tuesday night, March 25th.

"We are having an information only meeting for anyone who would like to become a volunteer to come to the office. We’re going to be going over all the opportunities that are available," said Marlene Henderson, Executive Director, American Red Cross of Muskingum Valley. "It’s everything from working here in the office to eventually being deployed out on a national disaster…There are just so many great opportunities with the Red Cross. You can come in on a daily basis, a weekly basis, whatever time commitment you want, that would fit right in to what we’re looking for also"

At the meeting, attendees will also have the chance to ask staff and other volunteers about their experiences and learn about the training for several positions.

The meeting runs from 6-7:30 PM. Anyone interested in learning about becoming a Red Cross volunteer is invited to attend. To RSVP and for questions, please call the Red Cross 740-452-2731. You can also visit their website at
