Here at the Red Cross, we love the people we work with, whether it’s a volunteer, staff or the members of our community that we serve during times of emergency. We thought it would be fun to profile our dedicated staff and get a deeper look at who they are outside of the Red Cross. Now, we’ve got a quick quiz for you.
