Future Volunteers Lend a Helping Hand

ERV kidsFour-year-old Hope Marston survived the tornado that hit Fairdale April 9. A few days later, Hope and her older siblings, Mikey, 7, and Shayna, 5, wanted to help. So they climbed aboard a Red Cross feeding truck stationed at that the tornado survivor center at First Lutheran Church in Kirkland.

They handed out snacks and water with Red Cross Volunteer Services Manager Peggy Pirovano. “They were so eager to help,” Pirovano said. “I can see they have a future with the Red Cross.”
