OCT. 7, 2005--The Chippewa Valley chapter of the American Red Cross is offering a volunteer training session from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22 in Room118 of the Wyman Education Building on the University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus.

The session is being held to cultivate volunteers for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, to encourage campus and community members to get involved in civic engagement and to educate citizens on what to expect when assisting with a disaster, according to UW-RF social work Professor Ogden Rogers, the River Falls Hurricane Katrina response coordinator who will lead the training session.

All campus and community residents are invited to participate in the session, which will focus on family services provided by the Red Cross.
