Hometown: Brentwood, NY
Volunteer since: August 2007
Why she volunteers: Celia says that her mother taught her that the most important thing to do is give back. Her favorite part about volunteering at Red Cross is meeting a wonderful group of volunteers from every walk of life and nationality who are willing to drop anything on a moment’s notice to help their neighbors.
Advice: Celia would like to advise volunteers to try different things. “There are so many opportunities at the Red Cross,” she says. “It’s not all disaster. It’s so many great activities that help create lifelong friendships.”
Fun fact: Celia received the Clara Barton Award.
