Red Cross in need of volunteers

From hurricanes to wildfires, it’s been a destructive summer across the U.S., and that has kept the American Red Cross busy.  Patty Brooks, Executive Director for the Red Cross in eastern South Dakota, said they are in urgent need of volunteers.

Brooks says in some cases, it’s just as rewarding for the volunteers as it is for those they’re helping.

She says the pandemic has impacted their volunteer numbers.

Brooks says it is  easy to get the volunteer process started.

Brooks says it’s not uncommon for volunteers to be deployed within 24 to 48 hours after completing their training.
