DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado-Wyoming chapter of the American Red Cross hopes Coloradans consider volunteering. The agency is calling attention to the need during National Volunteer Week which runs April 17 through April 23.

“The need for volunteers has never been greater as we experience larger and more intense disasters across the country,” the agency stated on social media.

Red Cross volunteers recently responded to Gypsum and Larimer County for separate wildfires which forced mandatory evacuations.
