LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - A non-profit organization that helps others through hardships is in dire need of do-gooders to continue its mission.

The American Red Cross Laredo Branch is currently in the process of recruiting volunteers who would be interested in helping victims of house fires, flooding or other type of natural disasters.
