Despite being shy, Michelle Hogue knew she wanted to volunteer for the Red Cross when she saw a post from another volunteer on a neighborhood app.
She thought, “I want to give back.
Although nervous at first, she enthusiastically responded to her first assignment in public affairs talking to people at a shelter after the McKinney Fire.
“It turned out to be an amazing experience.”
She said the thing that affected her most was the gratitude among proud people who were willing to accept help from the Red Cross. She advised anyone who wants to volunteer to know that connecting with people makes it worth it.
