American Red Cross thanks volunteers

April is National Volunteer Month, and the American Red Cross is taking the time to thank their many volunteers.

90% of the Red Cross workforce is made up of volunteers. Volunteers respond to house fires, teach lifesaving skills, host blood drives, and respond to other emergency situations. The Red Cross celebrates volunteers and the work they do to prevent human suffering.

"These men and women are coming out to help out of the goodness of their heart. They are not getting paid for this, this is something that they are doing just to make sure that their community members and the people around them have what they need. The resources that they need," said Dan Fox, of the American Red Cross.

The Red Cross is always looking for more people to become volunteers. If interested in becoming a volunteer with the Red Cross, feel free to email Dan Fox at @RedCrossBldMOIL or by visiting
