American Red Cross Silicon Valley Chapter
August 6, 2008

In 1989 the Red Cross came to our area of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Loma Prieta, and helped us without water or power for a week deal with life. What a wonderful resource. Since then I have been a volunteer with the Red Cross trying to give something back. But I think I get more back from assisting fire clients than I do helping them. Its a great organization

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the faces of the people we help after a fire

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide a little more information to the volunteers of how the family is fairing.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the good feeling I get when a family has a roof over their head while they deal with the fire experience

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all putting their time into the right places for the right reasons

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide additional / better support for the clients we already take care of

Ways to make it better...

I only had more time to get involved

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting enough people who will spend the time to be trained, and willing to wake up at 3 AM to help

One thing I'd also say is that...

I dont think I will ever ressign because I am getting too busy

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & After hours dispacher.
