American Red Cross seeks volunteers


GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — The American Red Cross needs more volunteers largely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“With the coronavirus, we’re expecting a lot of our longtime volunteers are reaching an age or have health concerns about volunteering,” Lisa Colby, Executive Director of the Upstate Chapter of the American Red Cross, said.

Coronavirus has also hurt the organization’s normal recruiting habits and tactics.
