Red Cross App 19 Jul 13

The American Red Cross Thursday launched the Team Red Cross App.

Officials say the app allows people to sign up to help, get an
overview on basic tasks, and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community.

Southern Minnesota Regional Director Melanie Tschida says “When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help but may not know how.” She says “The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community.”

The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets.

The Team Red Cross App is the seventh in a series of highly
successful Red Cross Apps, which are now on more than 3 million mobile devices across the country.

The Team Red Cross App can be found in the Apple App Store and
the Google Play Store or on the Red Cross website.
