American Red Cross
You can become a volunteer for the American Red Cross at their St. Cloud Donation Center. Volunteers help assist the Red Cross by greeting and registering donors and offering refreshments. Hours are flexible, so you can work around your work schedule.
Whitney Senior Center
The Whitney Senior Center has various volunteer positions open, from hosting weekly events to teaching or leading workshops. Have a special talent you want to share with people? Here’s your chance.
The Salvation Army will always accept volunteers in areas like food serving, food shelf staff, and cooking. Volunteering in these areas means that you’ll get to help feed the members of your own community who are in need.
This local humane society helps find homes for cats, dogs, or other animals that come through their doors. You can volunteer to transport animals, walk them and keep their kennels clean, or even photograph them. What’s better than hanging out with dogs and cats?
Last month the Mitsubishi Motors USA Foundation announced that it would donate $30,000 to Red Cross of the Heartland, the American Red Cross branch located in Bloomington, Illinois. The Mitsubishi donation to Red Cross of the Heartland will go in part to the Red Cross Home Fires campaign.
The donation was made in partnership with O’Brien Mitsubishi, a Mitsubishi dealership in Normal, Illinois, and was presented to Red Cross officials in a ceremony that took place at the dealership in early April. This is another effort from Mitsubishi to help give back to Normal, IL, where it recently closed its Mitsubishi plant.
The Red Cross Home Fires campaign is dedicated to serving the local community by installing smoke alarms in the homes of at-risk groups like single parents and those of low socioeconomic status in order to lower the rate of injury and loss of life from home fires in these groups.
Mitsubishi has a strong history with the Red Cross, including its support of the Red Cross of the Philippines in 2015, when Mitsubishi dealers came together to donate 7.3 million Philippine pesos to the organization.
