▶️ Red Cross seeks more Oregon volunteers in aftermath of Hurricane Ian


Red Cross Cascades, which covers Oregon and Southwest Washington, says it needs more disaster relief volunteers. It comes after the region has sent people to Florida and Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

Red Cross Cascades says it has sent at least 30 people to Florida so far and it expects to send even more in the coming days.

Red Cross will be holding informational events in the coming week. Two are virtual and three are in person. You can find more information at this link, but Red Cross says the in-person events are limited to 25 people, so it’s important to RSVP.
