Stories from Shefali Patel and Conrad Wilbourn

“I volunteer with the American Red Cross because it not only is an excellent way to help my community locally, but also on a national scale. Volunteering with the Red Cross gives me the opportunity to improve someone else’s life. It really isn’t about the volunteer hours, rather the aspects of life one takes away from this organization shape your future. I have been on the Red Cross since 7th grade and it has been a like a second family to me. I am thankful for all the leadership skills i have learned by volunteering with this organization, but mainly i am grateful for the strong friendships i have developed over the years. Despite my age, I know that through the American Red Cross i am given the opportunity to make a change in the world.”
