Local volunteers are coming together to help people in need

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - If you've ever been displaced from your home or had a loved one displaced, you know the importance of receiving help. That help often comes in the form of Red Cross volunteers. They are the ones who make people's worst days a little better. They're prepared to help no matter the time of day or night.

James Lenell Ledwith, of American Red Cross of Wyoming, says, "Here in Wyoming, we respond to about 70 to 100 phone calls a year. Those can be anything from car fires to wind events, gas leaks, or like we had recently where a truck drove through a side of an apartment and we had to house people for a couple of days."

If you're interested in volunteering, the next Wyoming Disaster Hour meeting is being held today (February 6, 2018) at Laramie County Library in the Sunflower room from 6-7pm.
