American Red Cross recruits in Dunklin County

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - The American Red Cross is looking for volunteers to serve in Dunklin County.

Recruitment specialist Amber Moyers hosted a volunteer orientation class at First Assembly Church of God in Kennett Saturday morning.

Moyers says there are less than a dozen volunteers in Dunklin County and two volunteers in Kennett.

"I've been working on this since October. I've gotten maybe a handful. So, it's really, really challenging here, but the more people we have the better the response can be and the better the community can take care of itself during disasters," Moyers said.

"We do have quite a bit of home fires, specifically, that happen in this area and we have very few volunteers."

Anyone interested in volunteering in Dunklin County or any other area can visit  or call 1-888-335-9471 for more information.
