As a local and national volunteer of Red Cross I have been a disaster nurse volunteer for many years and can testify to best managemenent of all types of disasters and the best response from recipients of their services. I have helped out numerous other groups but am most impressed with Red Cross as an organization and with the dedicated volunteers involved. I urge any nurses or others to volunteer their time to help the others or to donate to a major organization that spends donated money the best. My personal memories include people's tears and relief with help they seldom receive from of anyone else. Many people are only aware of major disasters like hurricanes, floods or tornadoes when many groups show up or solicite donations on TV, but are never aware of house fires or families needing help locating military relatives for messages. Dedicated volunteers help at all hours and places but are seldom acknowledged by the public. They ARE appreciated by Red Cross and continue being volunteers for a long time. That is my reason for staying with this group.
