The American Red Cross Cape Fear Chapter celebrated its volunteers and the work they do in the community during National Volunteer Week, April 6-12.
Last year, our volunteers provided food, shelter, comfort and hope to 513 local residents who faced home fires and other disaster situations. They trained 2,637 people in lifesaving skills and assisted 542 military members, veterans and their families. They also helped collect 16,370 units of blood from 495 blood drives in the Cape Fear area.
