Every eight minutes, American Red Cross members respond to a disaster in our nation. If you would like to be part of the Red Cross team, we need volunteers that would like to go to fires, set up shelters when disaster victims are displaced, provide assistance and assess damages after tornado disasters or flooding occurrences in Martin, Jackson, Nobles, Rock and Murray counties.
We will train you, and you will enjoy some of the greatest experiences of your lives. If you have special skills — ham radio, EMT, Nursing, customer service, teaching etc. — we can use you. Everyone has skills that the Red Cross can use.
Talk to your friends, get them involved. Please call me at Southwest Red Cross, 372-4702, for further information. The Southwest Minnesota Red Cross Chapter is located at 716 Oxford St., Suite #2, Worthington 56187.
