South Texas American Red Cross in need of volunteers
The American Red Cross is getting ready to jump into action— if and when they are needed.
The South Texas chapter of the Red Cross is asking Valley residents to sign up to be volunteers and attend training sessions.
As of a few days ago, the Red Cross began putting plans in place in case there will be a need to open shelters.
"Right now, we are providing training. It's a just-in-time training for shelter workers to be able to support our operations if we were to have to open shelters," said Jake Peters with the American Red Cross. "They would be able to take shifts for us to support in those shelters."
If you would like to volunteer with the Red Cross, visit their website or call 423-0523.
