Above are some incredible photos from the recent flooding in Laredo, Texas.
When you see these types of images, do you ever wondered how you could help? I remember exactly when I decided to start volunteering for the American Red Cross. I was sitting helplessly in my living room watching the devastation that Hurricane Katrina inflicted. The first step is to take the Introductory Disaster Volunteer Workshop. In a few hours, you will learn the Mission of the Red Cross and about mass care activities, including sheltering responsibilities, fixed and mobile feeding, and bulk distribution of essential supplies so you can become a disaster reserve volunteer.
Upcoming classes are Saturday, July 17th 9am-12:30pm, Tuesday, July 20th 6-9:30pm, Saturday, August 21st 9am-12:30pm, Tuesday, August 24th 6-9:30pm, and Saturday August 27th 9am-12:30pm. To register please email Keith Bridges at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All participants receive certification cards for the Fulfilling Our Mission and Mass Care Overview classes.
