As we celebrate, thank and honor our Red Cross volunteers during National Volunteer Week, we are introducing you to real Red Cross volunteers who are talking about why they give of their time to help others.

Meet Susan Wiseman, a volunteer for the Red Cross of Western Colorado who was inspired to help others by the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. She remembers how she wanted to help those who were sufferering. Susan’s first disaster response was for Hurricane Katrina and she recalls her experience as a Red Cross volunteer.

Hear what Susan says about being a Red Cross volunteer.
