Red Cross offers free training classes
The American Red Cross will be hosting a free training for those interested in learning about how they can help the Red Cross respond to disasters. Trained volunteers are needed to help respond in a variety of ways after a disaster has affected a community. The Disaster Services: An Overview course introduces these different activities to interested community members and prospective volunteers. “Red Cross volunteers help to transform a life in crisis into a life of hope, and we are always recruiting volunteers who have a desire to make a difference in the lives of people affected by disaster,” said John Jones, Kearney Red Cross Office Manager. “We welcome anyone who is interested in disaster response or learning more about the Red Cross to attend.” Disaster Services: An Overview will be offered at the following locations:*Tuesday, July 2nd from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Kearney Red Cross Office, 520 W. 48th St., Kearney*Tuesday, July 9th from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Lexington Public Library, 907 N.
