Amanda Phebus, board member and public support committee member, joined the American Red Cross because she believes in the organization’s mission.
She said she has been helping with events ever since she started her journey with the Red Cross. In addition, she added that her favorite one is Everyday Heroes, an annual event held in Monroe County that celebrates local residents and their unselfish acts.
“I always look forward to helping with Everyday Heroes because it is a very heartwarming event that recognizes the people in the community who set out to make a difference in someone else’s life,” Phebus said. “And the stories bring you to tears because it is amazing to hear how a neighbor, a teacher or a child went above and beyond to help out someone else.”
She added that volunteering with the Red Cross has given her the opportunity to see what an impact the organization makes in the community. And she encourages everyone to start their volunteer journeys with the Red Cross to see how they can start making a difference in their communities.
We would like to say thank you to all of our volunteers. And we hope you will begin your volunteer journey with us soon if you have not already.
