The Red Cross is looking for volunteers from New Hampshire!

The Northern New England Region of the American Red Cross sends people out to help with the national disasters going on around the country.

For the past few weeks, volunteers have been helping with Midwest Derecho, wildfires in the West, Hurricane Laura and catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Sally, according to Manchesterinklink.com.

About 5000 people have already been sent out to help, but the Red Cross tells the news outlets that even more people are needed to deal with urgent need.

If you are not able to go to the disaster areas, there are also ways to help virtually.

According to Redcross.org, "volunteers lead the Red Cross mission of emergency preparedness, prevention and response. No matter your interests, skills, or schedule, you can make a significant contribution to your community and help people in their moments of greatest need.

Volunteer Bill Sitz of Sandwich just got back from helping with disaster relief in New Orleans. He tells manchesterinklink.com:

“You get more than you give when you deploy with the Red Cross. It’s amazing to see disaster responders from all walks of life coming together to fulfill our humanitarian mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.”
