Red Cross seeks help from victims, volunteers

The Northern Nevada chapter of the American Red Cross is looking for former volunteers, board members, staff, and people who were helped by the Red Cross, to develop a more complete picture of the history of the chapter in Reno. The information will be used as part of the 110th anniversary celebration of the Red Cross in Nevada in 2008.

Red Cross is looking for people like Don and Norma Thompson. Norma moved to Reno in 1950 and worked for the Red Cross as the military family liaison. Don was the Red Cross Water Safety Director and a lifeguard at Idlewild Pool. They meet at the Reno Red Cross office in 1952 and will celebrate their 53rd anniversary next year.

Anyone that has worked for or volunteered with the Red Cross, or been a recipient of support, is encouraged to call 856-1000.
