Pioneers Announce Partnership with Red Cross
AT&T Pioneers announced a new digital volunteer PARTNERSHIP with the American Red Cross during the 2014 Pioneers in Motion Conference on March 21 & 22, 2014.
Today, many of our Pioneer chapters, councils and clubs already support great projects related to human services and disaster relief. Disaster preparedness kits, hug-a-bears, and other great initiatives have been used to improve the lives of those affected. Think about the impact the AT&T Pioneers Disaster Relief Fund has made to individuals and families in need after a natural disaster. The fund is possible through the donations of Pioneers and AT&T employees.
Complementing the efforts of the Pioneers is the creation of a new online training program by the American Red Cross. Their ability to now offer online training opens new volunteer opportunities for Pioneers and volunteers that previously might not have had access to the regular on-site training. In April 2013 Pioneers was one of the participants in a pilot program with the American Red Cross. The pilot was hosted in Dallas, New Jersey, and Atlanta and exceeded expectations. The pilot hoped to engage 500 volunteers for the eLearning experience but over 1,000 responded to the opportunity, with 97% of the participants recommending the eLearning experience as a great 2014 volunteerism program!
With this in mind, join us in partnering with the American Red Cross in 2014 to ensure the ability (theirs and ours) to continually “answer the call” of those in need. Together we can make a difference to victims of disasters!
