Volunteers for two-week assignments are needed to deploy quickly to help fire victims in Oregon and California or hurricane victims in Louisiana and Florida. Go to www.redcross.org/volunteer/become-a-volunteer/urgent-need-for-volunteers.html to learn more and apply. This is a great way to follow the teachings of our savior and serve one another.
