Red Cross Volunteer Training for University of Memphis Football Team

We at the Mid-South Red Cross extend a huge thank you and welcome to the University of Memphis football team. On Saturday, April 18th, the team stepped forward to be trained as Red Cross volunteers and acquire the skills necessary to work in Red Cross disaster shelters when the need arises. They are an awesome group of guys, and it was our pleasure to work with them and welcome them to the Red Cross family of volunteers.
