WAUSAU (WAOW) -- March is Red Cross Month, and leaders are hoping to bring in volunteers.
Nationally, the Red Cross responds to nearly 200 neighborhood emergencies each day.
Leaders say they would not be able to provide the response without the help of the community.
"Volunteers are crucial with the red cross. We have 35 thousand paid employees across the nation," said Kayla Schmidt, volunteer director, "The rest of the support that you see coming from the Red Cross comes from volunteers. They're the ones who get the mission accomplished and focus on the mission of the Red Cross."
