WHAT YOU CAN DO

This just in:
To Volunteer Your Time:
People looking to volunteer AT REUNION ARENA or the DALLAS CONVENTION CENTER need to attend an orientation at a local Red Cross facility. To fill out an application, click here, or go to the Red Cross and fill it out there. The nearest Red Cross to our office is at 4800 Harry Hines Blvd (214-678-4800). The class is approximately 3 hours, and you will be certified to volunteer at any of the local shelters, Reunion Arena, or at the Convention Center. Anyone in the medical field may attend a “rapid class”, in order to speed up the process.
