Red Cross Canteens for Search and Rescue Teams

Carthage, MO – The Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross has disaster action team (DAT) volunteers in Carthage to provide canteen services to the members of the search and rescue teams involved in the Amber Alert for the missing Carthage child.   The volunteers were on hand at 7:30 this morning to provide breakfast.  They have also provided lunch and will be serving dinner.  At this time they are planning on helping out on Saturday as well.
