Talk given by: Adam Sobel, temple member, who is retired, but has found how fulfilling it can be to be a Red Cross volunteer. Find out how!

“The variety of volunteer opportunities can seem overwhelming, but there are several ways to go about narrowing down the list and finding the ones that work for you. I have been very fortunate that, within the big umbrella of the American Red Cross, there were a number of openings that I found fulfilling and meaningful. Whether it’s responding to disasters, like home fires, delivering emergency supplies of blood to hospitals or installing smoke alarms, each job is exciting and rewarding. Just as importantly, it’s on my schedule not someone else’s.” – Adam Sobel
