Volunteers, donations still needed by Red Cross & World Care

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

American Red Cross volunteers from Southern Arizona have just returned home this week, after helping tornado victims in Arkansas.

But the help is not stopping just because volunteers are back home.  Local volunteers were in some of the hardest hit areas that affected the south and Midwest last month. 

Volunteers returned with some incredible stories from their work and they say it was only possible due to Tucson's donations.

American Red Cross volunteer Joyce Morgan returned from Arkansas this week, she is now getting back to her normal routine after helping dozens of people who went through traumatic experiences.

One person she helped was in a car when one of the tornados lifted her car into the air with her children still inside.

Fortunately everyone survived but Morgan helped the victim cope through the trauma that comes with an experience like that.

The American Red Cross says donations are still needed for their Disaster Relief Fund, because they anticipate a busy tornado season. And of course other natural disasters affecting many right now like the fires raging in San Diego. 

World Care is also still collecting donations as well. For a full list of donations they are in need of go online to http://worldcare.org/ or http://www.redcross.org/az/tucson
