Why I Volunteer: Arnold Weaver

ArnoldWeaverMy name is Arnold Weaver. I’m 35, have a wife and three children and I’m a professional auto mechanic in Walla Walla, WA.

I joined Red Cross with the vision of being able to give back to the community I live in.

It can be difficult to find a volunteer program that works with both my job and family life. The Red Cross has been great that way. I get emails whenever there is an activity like hosting a booth at a show or helping in a shelter.

I can volunteer at times that work with my schedule so it’s really easy to get involved!

I’ve been a volunteer for about six months now, have helped with several promotional/educational events, and worked in a shelter that welcomed around 14 apartment fire victims. It’s been an awesome experience so far and I’ve met a lot of good people!

In the future I hope to continue working in emergency shelters and hopefully expand my experience and training to be able to help with blood drives.

The Red Cross is looking for young, professional volunteers like Arnold!  We have positions that fit all kinds of schedules and interests. Find out what’s available in your community:
