- How did you get started with the Red Cross?
My close friend Ferol Page decided she was going to be a volunteer so I went with her to orientation. I’ve been a volunteer for the past 6 years and recently joined the AmeriCorps family in January 2010. This is my first one-year tour.
- What is your favorite Red Cross moment?
My first time volunteering at a Red Cross shelter, I noticed an elderly women pushing her elderly sister in a wheelchair toward to the feeding area. I realized that the elderly women would not be able to take both trays to the table, so I carried the trays for them. It was a moment they really appreciated.
Why should people volunteer with the Red Cross?
” If everyone would do a little part by helping others, it would make life easier for all of us.”
