DES MOINES, Iowa -- Leaders with the Red Cross are looking for more volunteers for disaster relief efforts.

The Red Cross of Central Iowa has a shortage of volunteers, and leaders said they are trying to recruit more Iowans. They plan to send 50 volunteers to the southeast, where residents down there were affected by recent hurricanes.

"Its important right now to come into our organization," Disaster Program Manager Keith Kuperman said. "We want to empower them with all the resources and tools to be a successful volunteer with the red cross."
