On this Monday morning before the celebration of Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for The American Red Cross. Although never directly involved in receiving aid from the American Red Cross, I have made many contributions by donating blood and coordinating Blood Drives. Before he died, my spouse saved a co-worker's life using CPR. He was honored by The American Red Cross and President Reagan in Washington, D.C.

 

 

 

But personal recognition is not what this story is all about. It's about the moral rights we have as human beings to assume responsibility and find solutions to natural disasters and improve the quality of life for others. When you think about it, an American Red Cross Volunteer is willing to lay down their life, so that another one lives.  There are many ways we can volunteer. See: www.redcross.org. When I think about Katrina, previous 2016 flooding in Greenbriar where Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor® lives and works, plane crashes, and other disasters, I immediately think about the American Red Cross who sends volunteers to help bring relief. In part, they promote an interest in humanitarian efforts and provide solutions to consequences outside one's control.

 

The effects of the American Red Cross operation in terms of the environmental quality to society as a whole and the impact it has on survivors or non-survivors is admirable. I am extremely thankful for the American Red Cross. They don't wait around or stand in line to apply for government aid and they never give up. They work together as volunteers until the job is done. When it comes to morality and human rights American Red Cross volunteers demonstrate exactly how we should all live our lives. For that reason, I am grateful.

The gift of life saving blood and helping others in time of a crisis are so appreciated! Red Cross has the been the first responder to many of the hurricane events I have experienced.

Hi Patricia, the Red Cross helped many here in the Greenbrier County. 23 lives were lost, and some bodies were not found for weeks.  We had volunteers from the Red Cross, FEMA, and Franklin Graham's Samantha Purse.  Without their help... we could not have rebuilt.  There are two communities being built for the flood victims that lost their homes. One in White Sulphur Springs and one in Rainelle, WV.  I am very thankful for all the volunteers.
