Volunteers in the Twin Cities will have many ways to help others this Friday and Saturday (Oct. 8-9). You can join the Be The Match Registry, donate blood, donate food and volunteer on an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project!

Be The Match® is joining ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in St. Paul, Minn., as they rebuild the home of Sandy Morris and her children. As part of its ongoing involvement in Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Be The Match will hold donor registry drives to encourage local volunteers and spectators to join the Be The Match RegistrySM.

In addition, the Red Cross will be holding blood drives and the Neighborhood House is conducting a food drive.
