Born and raised in Sunnyvale, Dianna became a Red Cross volunteer in high school and loved working the first aid station at the Santa Clara county fair. “I learn so much and am blessed every time I am serving others,” she says.
Dianna has lived in Escalon (San Joaquin County) for 7 years. She volunteers at 5 to 6 mobiles per month. “During the blood drives, I have a chance to meet wonderful people and share my experiences with them and also, listen and learn about them,” says Dianna.
When not volunteering, Dianna tends a large vegetable garden and 18 chickens, and plays with 3 much-loved dogs. She enjoys knitting and crocheting and hanging out with her three granddaughters.
We were so impressed with her dedication to the Red Cross and her tenacity in learning all she could about what we do in the United States.
