As Hurricane Sandy creeps toward the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States, the Sacramento chapter of the American Red Cross is preparing to send in volunteers.
The American Red Cross Capitol Region Chapter is sending 18 volunteers to the east coast to help those impacted by the storm. Two groups of six are going White Plains, NY to open and operate shelters, while the remaining six head to Baltimore to open a shelter there.
The volunteers are leaving Saturday night from San Francisco to make sure they’re in place before the hurricane makes landfall.
