Red Cross steps up in time of need

The recent winter storm has countless amounts of people still without power. That's why the American Red Cross of Northwest Michigan has stepped up to provide warming shelters and relief throughout the area.

During 7&4 News Today, Tuesday morning, Kevin Bavers the executive director for the Red Cross sat down with 7&4's Melissa Smith to talk about what volunteers are doing and how other people can get involved to help people who are still without power.

Bavers says he is thankful for all of the Red Cross volunteers who have provided their time and energy during this time of emergency and for area businesses that are able to provide the warming shelters.
