(Editorâ€™s Note: With April 10-16 being National Volunteer Week, this is part four of a four-part series about the importance of volunteers in certain organizations throughout the community.)
Volunteers are not only critical to helping organizations runs smoothly. They are also key to helping them keep citizens safe and healthy.
Cindy Nickell at American Red Cross of Borger said she can use volunteers. She continued to say the Hutchinson County area has well over 100 volunteers who respond to fires, help canteen the firefighters, and also train the public in CPR and first aid.
