The American Red Cross is asking people throughout the Northwoods and the rest of Wisconsin to join the national movement on Wednesday(4/26) by donating time by becoming a volunteer, donating blood, getting trained or donating on Giving Day.

Spokesperson Barbara Behling says those donations donation can sustain life, build stronger communities and provide urgent relief such as food, blankets and other essentials to people who need it most....

"....it might be with a financial gift to help our disaster relief program. It might be volunteering time to help a family in your community. It could be donating a pint of blood to save the life of another person. There are many ways to get involved...."

Behling says helping people in the Northwoods is part of volunteering...

"...we've got a robust team in the Northwoods but we always need more. As the tornado season is upon us and the hurricane season is right around the corner. It's a way to see parts of the country you've never seen before, but of course, our home fires are happening each day. It's a way to help your neighbors...."
