Throwback Thursday – “Volunteers”

heroes

While recently digging through the archives at the offices of our Northeastern California Chapter (formerly known, as indicated in the following text, as the “Three Rivers Chapter”), we came across a lovely poem written 10 years ago by a young volunteer by the name of Danielle E. Terry.

It’s a short, sweet, and timeless tribute to the amazing heart and compassion of Red Cross volunteers. Thank you for the touching words, Danielle. As true then as they are today…

Volunteers

It’s not for the money
It’s not for the fame
It’s not for the glory
Or any personal gain

It’s to help
To lend a hand
To be a part
And Understand

Full of pride
Self-esteem
Being a member
of this team

Give us all
Three big cheers
For we are all
Red Cross Volunteers!
