American Red Cross Volunteers Stories

We are active volunteers for the American Red Cross as members of the Public Relations Team currently connected to the Northeast Wisconsin group. As we progress through our formal training for national disaster deployment, we have embarked on a series of regional disaster response stories to promote the amazing volunteers of the American Red Cross.

What they accomplishment, where they come from, the distance they travel and the immediate impact they have on people of any Wisconsin community and beyond in desperate circumstances.

Here are a few of our most recent American Red Cross stories:

Justin Kern, communications officer with the American Red Cross of Wisconsin, was deployed in Florida as part of the nationwide response to Hurricane Michael. Here, Justin shows some of the devastation, but also the response, powered by your generosity and volunteerism.
