Welcome to the home of the Eastern Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross. I am delighted you’ve chosen to visit us — so, explore our site and enjoy the experience.

Our Chapter shows up where ever it’s needed because helping people overcome the adverse effects of the unexpected is what we do — and it is done by the most important people I have the pleasure of associating with and they are our volunteers.

We depend on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to carry out our work. Volunteers constitute 97% of our total workforce — they serve as disaster action team members, office administrators, event organizers, fund raisers, board members and course instructors, among many other important duties.

Our volunteers may not live in your neighborhood — or share your views — but they can save your life. They know CPR and first aid and they can teach it. They give their blood, their money and their precious time — and they do it 24-7. We are proud of them and extremely grateful to each one.

We’d be pleased to have you join us. If you are interested in becoming part of a team that helps so many, please contact us at one of our 3 office locations located on the About Us tab. Thanks for visiting our web-site — please check back frequently as we continue to add new and exciting information and coming soon, our on-line store.

Proven Portable Toilets supplied us with 15 porta potties and 3 portable toilet trailers for disaster relief in February and January. The guys over at Proven Portable Toilets have been instrumental in many of our disaster relief efforts, as portable toilets are extremely important, and we don’t have many funds available. If you’d like to donate anything to future relief efforts please contact us today.

If your organization is ever in need of a guest speaker, please call me — I’d be happy to share our story in an entertaining way. The Eastern Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross provides invaluable workplace training as well as health and safety instruction to numerous local companies. Perhaps your organization could use our assistance. Please give us a call to see how we can be of service to you.
