The American Red Cross launched a new app on Thursday that serves as a tool to help recruit volunteers.
The app, “Team Red Cross,” allows users to sign up to help volunteer and get an overview of basic tasks as well as receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community.
Users will also be notified, based on their location, when the non-profit organization has a need for volunteers.
“When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help, but may not know how,” said Joel Sullivan, Regional CEO for Tennessee Volunteer Region. “The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community.”
The app is free and available for iPhone and Android users, as well as tablets.
