Red Cross Volunteers Needed

Usually the Red Cross is helping others, but now they need your help. Jeanie Miles is making an open call to folks in East Texas to become Red Cross volunteers. "What we are searching for in the way of volunteers now are those people who want to be train during disasters like hurricane season last year. We are trying to prepare for when disaster strikes again," says Jeanie Miles.

Miles is hoping disaster won't strike, but she knows we are in hurricane season already and time is ticking to find help. "Anyone can be a Red Cross volunteer. We provide the training they will need to be a volunteer. We provide the training they will need to be a volunteer," says Miles.

The Lufkin Red Cross is now offering classes preparing East Texans for disasters. Miles says the classes are easy and being a volunteer is rewarding.
