The American Red Cross are deploying a number of volunteers to California to help respond to the massive evacuation caused by the potential failure of a spillway for the Oroville Dam System. Two of the volunteers, Chuck Bullard and Kathi Knope are from Christian County, and will be helping the Red Cross with their efforts.
Bryan Soady, Executive Director for the American Red Cross serving South Central Illinois spoke with Regional Radio News and gave an overview of what the situation is in California, and how the Red Cross is helping those affected.
Soady discussed the two Christian County volunteers, and shared the role they’re most likely playing in the Red Cross’ efforts.
If you would like to volunteer with the Red Cross, you can sign up online, or contact your local American Red Cross chapter.
