Volunteer a couple hours of your time for the young men & women entering the US Armed forces at the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) office in South Boston's Seaport at 495 Summer St. On Mon, Tues & Wed AM, these recruits, or "shippers" swear-in, shortly before heading to Logan airport and eventually the Bootcamp of their line of service. The Red Cross offers an emergency communication service for all of these troops before they ship. Volunteers will be given the opportunity to speak with these recruits and ask if they would like to enroll in our program. If a member of the soldier's family needs to get in touch with them while they are enlisted, the Red Cross will handle the logistics. The Red Cross has an official charter with the US government that allows the Red cross to handle communications as well as travel logistics if a soldier needs to come home. Make a difference in these soldiers lives in just a couple hours a week. Call 781-661-8592 for more details, or apply for MEPS Military Station Volunteer position at: https://volunteerconnection.redcross.org/?nd=recruitment_page&page_id=316
