Red Cross Appeal 2022
We need your help!
We are looking for volunteers to support the Red Cross Appeal by being essentially a volunteer 'team leader'. During 14-20 March 2022, we will have street collections all over Aotearoa New Zealand, and are looking for Area/ Coordinators in a region near you!
No street appeal experience necessary as you will receive training, but if you have experience, fantastic!
Join our whānau of Red Cross volunteers
Can you give at least a day of your time to help vulnerable people in your community and overseas?
Responsibilities will include:
- Briefing volunteer street collectors
- Handling cash and bank deposits
- Checking collateral stock to ensure collectors have enough thank-you stickers etc.
- Covering/organising cover for any gaps and street collecting, where required
- Notifying Appeal Coordinator if any issues arise.
*All volunteer suburb coordinators will need to undertake a Ministry of Justice check and participate in a safe driver first aid course (at no cost).
We want people who have the following:
- Can-do attitude
- Ability to work with a wide group of people
- Be enthusiastic and have the commitment to work as a member of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement
- Empathy with humanitarian causes.
