AmeriCorps Week Volunteer Spotlight: Christine Gares
"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."
