The Yakima Chapter of the American Red Cross is looking for volunteers willing to travel to Texas and Florida to help hurricane victims or clients as the Red Cross calls them. Spokesman Cody Tussler says those interested go through training available in Yakima. "After that we can assign them and we're asking for a 10 to 15 day deployment."
All transportation and housing and food costs are included in the deployment where volunteers work 12 to 14 hour days doing a variety of jobs to help people recover. Training is now being scheduled. If you are interested contact Cody Tussler at the Red Cross office at 834 2650.
