Red Cross Seeks Volunteers for Disaster Response

Wichita Falls, Texas - Recently, Texas towns have been affected by floods, storms and tornadoes. However, the recent disasters have also bought awareness to the need for volunteers to assist the people affected by these disasters.

The American Red Cross of Wichita Falls is working to increase volunteer numbers, and the organization is urging people to join the Red Cross so that they are fully trained before the next disaster strikes.

"We responded repeatedly to storms and wildfires last year," said Katrina Farmer, Executive Director of American Red Cross. "But on top of that, we also get called every time a family loses their home to a structure fire. We served 83 Wichita County families last year, so every few days, our volunteers are needed." 

If you are interested in becoming a Red Cross volunteer, call (940) 322-8686 and they can get you started.
