Why I Volunteer: Jennifer Beaty

JenBI first started volunteering for the Red Cross when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

There was a shortage of Red Cross volunteers, I was a nurse, and I wanted to help.

I keep volunteering because of the people I meet and because of the opportunity it provides to use my skills as a nurse practitioner.

I review new volunteer applications and help people in shelters get medications that were lost.

The schedule is flexible so I can easily balance volunteering with work and home life.

I love helping others and hope I make a positive impact on others, especially in their time of need.

Do you have skills that could help people in need?

Join the American Red Cross!
