Red Cross is holding “Red Cross Boot camp” due to all of the disasters

In preparation for the expected landfall of Hurricane Irma in Florida, the Western Pennsylvania chapter of the Red Cross is looking for people to be shelter volunteers.

There will be a boot camp in Butler County next week (at the Herman Volunteer Fire Department on Thurs, Sept 14).

  1. Yet another local United Way caught in the quagmire of corruption. United Way of Armstrong County’s director steals $37,000

    Our local United Way chapters need to do better at vetting executive directors prior to hiring them. Armstrong hired an alleged thief, Heather Wolfe, and Butler has sustained large losses under the current one, Kierston Hobaugh.
