YOUR TURN: Red Cross Help


This week’s "Your Turn" segment goes to Robbie Sanchez. She took the time to comment on our Facebook page about WAFB’s Storm Relief donation drive.

The drive benefits the American Red Cross and some people expressed concern that not all of the donations get to the people who need them. Sanchez reminds everyone there’s another way to give. She is a Red Cross volunteer. In her words:

"We, as volunteers, have been busting our tails helping people. Some are at it 10 to 14 hours a day. We talk to people about their needs. We hug them and give them a shoulder to cry on. We get shelters opened. We load and unload trucks. We leave our families to help others. Some have used their work vacation to be able to volunteer. Red Cross is not just the dollars. It’s also about people who give their time to help others. Yes, we can always use more volunteers."
That’s Robbie Sanchez’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
