BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The American Red Cross has a new high-tech way to recruit volunteers.

The “Team Red Cross” smart phone application allows people to sign up and receive notifications about disaster volunteer opportunities in their community.

Stacy Rice with the Mount Baker Chapter of the Red Cross says the new app provides a quick and easy way to support the community.

She says many people want to help, but don’t know where to start.
