LIVE: Red Cross Celebrates Major Milestone

It's worth your time to check out this amazing organization, cross our hearts.

It’s hard to believe, but the American Red Cross is turning 137 this year. Think about it: the volunteer-driven organization came into effect during the Civil War and is still going strong to this day right here in the Red River Valley.

From coffee and blankets during a river search in winter, to hotel vouchers and clothes for families displaced by fire, to the countless natural disasters including the flood of 2009 and the two tornadoes to touch down in South Dakota last year, the Red Cross is there for you when you need them.

The American Red Cross — Dakotas region serves an enormous geographical area that includes both North Dakota and South Dakota and parts of Minnesota. And they do it with a workforce that’s 90% volunteer-driven. Find out what’s new with the Red Cross this year as they head forward into the future with a legacy of making lives safer, right here in our region.

The Red Cross’s Lynn Speral sat down live in-studio with the Morning Show’s Emily Welker to talk about some of what to expect in the coming year from the Red Cross and their tireless volunteers.
