Vermont Public Radio Puts Spotlight on High Demand for Red Cross Services

As has been noted in this Blog many times, this past year has been an extraordinary one for the Vermont & the New Hampshire Valley American Red Cross. Whether it was the Brooks House fire in our Green Mountain Chapter, a greater than 50% increase in demand for services seen by the Central VT/NH Valley Chapter, or the record-breaking floods that have been seen throughout the Northern Vermont Chapter, Red Cross Disaster Services has been on the scene helping our neighbors to recover.

Yesterday, Vermont Public Radio aired an interview with Regional Executive Larry Crist that focused on the impact the events of the past year have had on our organization's financial resources. To hear the interview, click on this link http://www.vpr.net/news_detail/90933/.
