Hurricane Matthew continues to inch toward the Eastern Seaboard and the Red Cross is seeking volunteers to assist with potential response in Eastern North Carolina.

The Red Cross is asking local residents to sign up to become volunteers and receive preparedness training, should our neighbors be affected by the storm. The organization is especially in need of volunteers available to assist with sheltering, feeding, and operational support.

To sign up, visit redcross.org/enc and click on “volunteer” to start your application.
