Gary Strong: A salute to hundreds of Red Cross volunteers during their week

The American Red Cross Gold Country Region is honoring its volunteers and the work they do in the community during National Volunteer Week, April 10-17.

Last year, our volunteers helped 739 local families who faced home fires and other disaster situations. They trained 43,250 people in lifesaving skills and assisted 1,132 military members, veterans and their families. Volunteers also went door-to-door in neighborhoods at high risk for home fires to install more than 2,500 smoke alarms and teach people about home fire safety.

We invite the public to join us and become a Red Cross volunteer. Go to redcross.org/goldcountry to learn more about the many ways people can help and how to submit a volunteer application.

We want to extend our sincerest thanks to the 2,700 local Red Cross volunteers who help us fulfill our mission here in the Gold Country Region which serves more than 4.4 million people across 24 counties. The support of our volunteers allows us to help people when they need it most.

Sincerely,

Gary Strong
CEO

Gold Country Region
