The American Red Cross is seeking skilled communications volunteers to utilize their skills in helping the Red Cross in Pagosa Springs and the surrounding communities.

Several positions are open; volunteers can serve in one or multiple roles, depending upon skills and availability:

• Disaster public affairs: Serve on-call several days a month to provide public information and media outreach during local disasters.

• Digital Engagement: Contribute to our blog and support the daily operations of our local social media.

• Storytelling: Help us share the Red Cross story by taking photos and/or interviewing clients, volunteers and heroes and capturing their stories in writing, video and/or photo.

 Prospective volunteers should have excellent writing and communications skills, have solid computer and social media skills, and be willing to commit to serve for at least one year.
