As Brandi prepares to take the stage in Charleston tonight, we would be remiss not to mention The American Red Cross and the vital work they are doing in response to the life-threatening flooding and historic rainfall that is affecting the entire State of South Carolina. As shelters open and plans to assess damage are underway, the Red Cross is in need of additional volunteers to join its workforce in the areas of Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, and the Upstate.
"We are helping families across South Carolina that are in need of shelter, disaster relief and comfort," said Louise Welch Williams, regional chief executive officer of the American Red Cross in South Carolina. "We are also welcoming members of the community who want to help to join us as Red Cross disaster volunteers."
The Red Cross is especially in need of volunteers to be available to assist with opening and operating shelters as well as disaster assessment. Shelter volunteers provide a safe, warm, dry place for their neighbors during a disaster. These volunteers assist with registration, setup of sleeping areas, feeding, and sharing information. Disaster assessment volunteers travel to areas affected by a disaster to review and assess the amount and severity of damage.
New volunteers can visit RedCross.org/SC and click on volunteer to start their application.
