AmeriCorps Week Volunteer Spotlight: Christine Gares

In honor of AmeriCorps Week 2011 we asked our own AmeriCorps members what their Red Cross experience has meant to them. 

"As an AmeriCorps member at the Metro NY Red Cross I have had the opportunity to do many things. One of the most memorable occasions was being in Times Square for New Year’s Eve. I have dreamed of spending December 31st in Times Square from the day I first learned about the ball falling from its perch to ring in the New Year. I provided support via mass care distribution (feeding) to the security personnel at the event. Not only was it the ideal location to actually see the ball drop, I was also able to help the community."
