For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has been helping people in need. 

National Volunteer Week will be coming up April 15-21 and the American Red Cross West Virginia region will honoring its volunteers who give their time and talent to help communities in their time of need.

“It’s a way for us to celebrate what the Red Cross is doing but also it’s a call for help.  Preventing and elevating human suffering requires a team,” said Jason Keeling, American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross invites the community to be part of its work, and to sign up to volunteer.
