Lynchburg Red Cross Seeking Volunteers for Katrina
UPDATE: Beverly Gaydas of the Lynchburg Red Cross has revised the plan for the rush program for volunteers. Because of the real posibility of disease outbreaks, and other issues. The Lynchburg Red Cross will be taking volunteers only in work at the local office for now. This may change we will keep you posted.
We have just received a call from Beverly Gaydas of the the Lynchburg Red Cross. And she said one of the most current need is people. They are looking for volunteers to spend at least two weeks and hopefully three weeks assisting in the effort to aid those falling victim of Kathrina.
The Red Cross would provide a crash course two week training program, and would fly the volunteers down to the area that needs assistance. There would be no personal costs incurred, the Red Cross would provide meals, shelter, transportation and etc.
