The Lives We


"Everything that we owned was burned up. Everything was gone. I had no idea I would ever need someone from the Red Cross, and I had no idea what they could do for me. I looked up in my driveway and saw 2 Red Cross volunteers in their reflective clothing, and I sort of ran to them and ran into their arms. That was the beginning of me learning about the Red Cross."
