The Red Cross has announced it currently needs volunteers willing to respond to disasters.
Each year, Red Cross volunteers bring food, shelter, comfort and hope to 78 local families faced with rebuilding after disasters, a press release from the Red Cross said. Volunteers are needed to assist families with immediate needs after a disaster and help guide them on their road to recovery. They are vital to the work of the Red Cross, making up 94 percent of the Red Cross workforce in communities around the country.
