Local Red Cross Needs Your Help

Local Red Cross Needs Your Help

The Red Cross assisted in 242 disasters just past year, and a large majority of the help came from volunteers, including those from the metro.

She also noted that free training is provided for volunteers. Then, we also have volunteers that will help follow-up with those that have been effected by a disaster, they might do just a follow-up call on that case work.

According to the Red Cross, the campaign launched in October 2014, and has already saved many lives and installed hundreds of thousands of smoke alarms in almost 10,000 cities and towns. They can use the app's "I'm Safe" button to connect with their loved ones. If they have the volunteers from each of their counties, they could get that much more done.

A Milwaukee woman who accused the American Red Cross of not helping her after her house caught fire now admits she lied. "Some of the folks have even deployed a few times", Dinsdale said. We like for them (volunteers) to go out as teams, if at all possible.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Red Cross announced that its disaster-trained volunteers are assisting a total of four adults by providing financial assistance for food, clothing, lodging and other essentials, and comfort kits containing personal hygiene items. "We will have more than 400 home fires in North and South Dakota this year; we see them every year and majority happen between October and March. Again, we can identify local resources for them". The Red Cross provides the basic needs for those who are affected, food, clothing shelter; things needed in the first hours and days when victims have lost everything.
