As a Red Cross Disaster Action Team member and volunteer, it is hard not to give it your all. I work full time and even then I am still thinking about the Red Cross and what more I can do to service its mission.

There were four of us responders on that call and we all left with a smile on our face and a new appreciation for what we had. I also recently experienced my first national deployment to Moore, OK. I was dealing first-hand with clients and it was truly an eye-opening journey. I would like to thank the Red Cross and the other many volunteers for giving me this opportunity to make a difference in my community and others.
