Currently, two volunteers from Southern Nevada are working with nearly 750 Red Cross workers who’ve responded from around the country to assist flooding victims in Colorado as well as New Mexico, Texas and Nebraska. Our volunteers are in the Boulder CO area, one assisting with medical needs, and the other offering emotional care services.
Following are pictures of Red Cross volunteers in action during the recovery phase.
