Red Cross kicks off "Every Red Cent Counts"

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The local chapter of the American Red Cross kicked off their "Every Red Cent Counts" campaign Friday.

Below is a list of the intersections they'll have someone at:

Jonesboro - Caraway and Johnson - manned by ASU Students; Highland and Caraway; Stadium and Nettleton; Mall at Turtle Creek; Walmart Parker Road; Walmart Highland Drive;

Every 5 minutes the life-saving mission of the American Red Cross benefits an Arkansan.
