The American Red Cross helps the community on a large scale and with local efforts, including helping families recover from fires and other hardships.
To do this, the local Red Cross hosts fundraisers including it's biggest one, Taste of Morgantown, which will be held June 12.
The Red Cross hosted one of its many blood drives at the Morgantown Mall to raise awareness for the event.
"It benefits just the local chapter of the Red Cross, I want to emphasize that. The proceeds for the Taste of Morgantown event benefit this local chapter which benefits this local community," said Shauna Soom, of the American Red Cross.
Taste of Morgantown will be at the Erikson Alumni Center on Wednesday, June 12.
