Thousands of American Red Cross disaster workers, including about 35 from south Louisiana, are providing aid and comfort to people affected by Superstorm Sandy. Shelters are open across multiple states and feeding operations are ramping up as communities become accessible.

More volunteers are needed to respond. If you are in a position to volunteer for a minimum of 14 days and would like to deploy as a Red Cross volunteer, come Saturday to the Louisiana Capital Area Chapter for training and paperwork completion. Training begins at 8 a.m. at 4655 Sherwood Common Blvd. (near Airline Highway and Sherwood Forest). If you are qualified and assigned, the Red Cross covers transportation, feeding and housing.

Call (225) 456-5606 for more information.
