Red Cross volunteer and councilwoman receives award

Beaufort City councilwoman Donnie Beer recently received an award for her dedication as a Red Cross volunteer. Beer has been described as the go-to person for help with middle-of-the-night disasters by Lady's Island-St. Helena Fire district spokesman Lee Levesque. Beer and fellow volunteer Larry Goldberg are the Red Cross first responders for residents in a five-county area who are displaced by home fires, floods or other disasters.
