Thank You AmeriCorps Members!

AmeriCorps Works: AmeriCorps Week March 9-17, 2013

“You give but little when you give of your possessions.  It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”  -Kahlil Gibran

Our West Michigan chapters would like to recognize the current AmeriCorps members and alums who chose to dedicate their time to Red Cross. The AmeriCorps program has led some wonderful people to our region!

“I’ve never known a more inspiring, committed, and innovative group of people than the AmeriCorps members that I had the pleasure to serve with during my term,” said Amanda Meldrum, AmeriCorps alum and current Grants & Stewardship Coordinator at American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids. I Heart AmeriCorps

“And as I work with members from each new term, I become more and more convinced that a year of giving back is something that everyone should experience.”

The American Red Cross is delighted to be one of the 15,000 nonprofit and community organizations that AmeriCorps members serve with. In West Michigan, the Red Cross utilizes the support of AmeriCorps members every day. We are so thankful for their committment and enthusiaism to support the Red Cross mission. They help serve in many different departments of the Red Cross organization, including disaster services, preparedness education, and volunteer services.

Each year during AmeriCorps Week, the committment of the AmeriCorps members and alums is recognized by highlighting the extraordinary impact AmeriCorps makes across our nation every day. Since 1994, AmeriCorps has seen 800,000 individuals serve throughout the United States.
