Red Cross offering disaster training for volunteers

Now is your chance to help

Have you ever seen an American Red Cross disaster worker on the news and thought, "I would love to help."

Now is your chance. The American Red Cross will conduct a class next weekend in Hood River to introduce volunteers to disaster training.

The Columbia River District of the American Red Cross served over 32 families from this area in the past year, providing emergency food, shelter and clothing to disaster victims.

Red Cross disaster volunteers are trained individuals who are helping communities prevent, prepare and respond to emergencies.

The next class, "Introduction to Disaster Services," will be held in Hood River, 1100 E. Marina Way #103, on Saturday, June 25 from 9 a.m. to noon.

For more information about volunteering for the Red Cross, or to register for this class, please contact District Manager Hannah Settje at (541) 386-6000.

The Columbia River District, Oregon Mountain River Chapter, serves the counties of Hood River, Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam in Oregon, and Skamania and Klickitat counties in Washington.
