I have recently starting working as a volunteer with the American Red Cross. I am currently running and walking to help raise funds for the American Red Cross, so they may continue to support organizations, families, and individuals in need. The American Red Cross is required by the government, but does not receive any federal funds. Therefore, they run solely on donations. In order for the Red Cross to continue to help people across Michigan, they need your help. As a committee member of the Hometown Heroes event on April 13th, I have learned how important the services of the Red Cross are. Please join me in supporting their efforts.
