Red Cross volunteers helped raise money Friday

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Red Cross volunteers spent the day Friday standing on street corners in Jonesboro.

The "Every Red Cent Counts" campaign kicked off Friday morning.

Volunteers were working to raise funds to support services Red Cross provides for the community.

Kandy Hart said it means a lot to her to be able to help make a difference to families who have lost everything due to a natural disaster.

"Everything is traumatic and it's a very tough time. And being able to go in there and just give them a little hope…we give hope," Hart said.

All money collected will be used for services provided to people in Region 8.
