For example, we know that while responding to fires, there’s always a chance that your backside will make the news.
We know that there are always snacks – here at the office or off of a canteen.
We also know that we can make a difference.
Yesterday, the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago responded to a 2 alarm fire on W. Hollywood in the city of Chicago.
While Fire Fighters were making heroic ladder rescues, the Red Cross was on the move.
Sam was part of the first team that arrived on scene. Along with several other volunteers, he worked with the Fire Department, the Landlord of the building, and the Office of Emergency Management and Communications to ensure that the residents of the building were going to have a place to go.
The Red Cross opened a shelter that is currently staffed with outstanding volunteers to provide those displaced with food clothing and shelter.
