Red Cross volunteers from Capital Region head to Florida for Hurricane Dorian

August 31, 2019 08:00 AM

Before Hurricane Dorian even hits Florida, the Capital Region is already offering help. A group of 10 Red Cross volunteers from eastern New York are heading down to Florida to lend a helping hand. More will be sent if need be.

This is exactly what Red Cross volunteers have always done. The volunteer work is very necessary, beneficial, and worthwhile for millions of Americans in what is often the worst time in their life.


NewsChannel 13 is once again teaming up with the American Red Cross and Price Chopper and Market 32 to help those affected by disasters like hurricanes, fires, floods and more. 

We need your help! You can make a donation to the disaster relief fund at any Price Chopper or Market 32. You can also click here.

Hear a pair of Red Cross volunteers explain why it's so important to help and learn about the impact it has on volunteers' families, by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
