Red Cross Short on Volunteers

3-4-06 – The Texoma Chapter of the American Red Cross is training nearly 70 volunteers in Sherman this weekend, but the Red Cross says they need more.

The volunteers signed up for disaster training on Saturday at a facility located at the intersection of Taylor and Loy Lake. The Red Cross hopes to train enough volunteers to help assist firefighters in the area – who have been busy fighting an unusually high number of grass fires this winter.

Volunteers who are interested in helping can call 903-465-1330 for more information.

The Red Cross is also preparing for a major fundraiser. A garage sale will be held March 18th and 19th at the old Hobby Lobby store in Sherman.

Donations can be dropped off Mon - Sat 10 A.M. TO 4 P.M. All items Except Clothes and Shoes
