Albany - Major national disasters grab headlines, but everyday disasters also have a devastating impact on many people. Although thousands of people give money and volunteer time for major catastrophes like Hurricane Katrina, house fires are what the Albany Red Cross spends the most time and resources on.

On Wednesday, Red Cross workers and staff members were recognized for their hard work throughout the year. "Our volunteers are our life source," said Mary Beth Hobby. "We need more people to come in and we need more people to serve. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, you need to be a volunteer because there's no bigger high than helping someone that needs your help."

The Albany Red Cross is always on the lookout for volunteers and donations to serve the 11 county region in Southwest Georgia. They provide victims with counseling, food, and shelter in emergencies.
