This has been designated "National Volunteer Week" and the Alabama Red Cross is honoring its volunteers who give their time to help people in need. Across the United States, hundreds of thousands of volunteers are part of the Red Cross. Here in the Alabama Region, more than 3,200 volunteers help the community. Tanner says The Red Cross invites members of the community to sign up today and become a Red Cross volunteer. National Volunteer Week ends April 18.
