The Red Cross appreciates its volunteers
Because it is National Volunteer Week, the Canadian Red Cross, Quebec Division, would like to highlight the involvement of their volunteers by promoting their precious work with a new, electronic card.
In the Estrie region, Marie-Eve Charest, Vicky Chainey and Francine Goulet have chosen, like other volunteers in their section, to give their time to the biggest humanitarian organization that helps victims during their most difficult times.
In Quebec, Red Cross volunteers form a network of 5000 people involved in their communities. They are at the heart of the humanitarian action of the Red Cross. They can be called to come to the aid of people whose lives have been turned upside down. They assure that people at public events receive first aid, they organize and participate in fundraisers, and they raise awareness about the mission of the Canadian Red Cross.
“Everyone finds their place with the Red Cross. Regardless of the activity, all the volunteers put their best foot forward to accomplish the organization’s mission. Moreover, when wearing the Red Cross’ tunic, they become beacons of humanity and hope for all those around them and for those they come to help,” commented Mylene Turcotte, president of the Conseil du Quebec de la Croix Rouge.
