Happy Friday Everyone!
To kick off a great weekend, we’re going to introduce you to Khoa and Jessi, two members of our new AmeriCorps Team here at the Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids. Jessi, a returning AmeriCorps member, will be working in the Education sector of our branch, and Khoa will balance two roles as he plans both community events and coordinates blood drives.
