This Throw Back Thursday post pays homage to a long time Red Crosser and dedicated staff member, Angela Shivers. Angela (pictured second from left) was a Junior Red Cross volunteer in 1966. In this photo, Angela distributes Christmas stockings to disabled children at the former DC Crippled Children's Society in Washington, DC.
Angela has a long history with the American Red Cross, serving as a Junior Red Cross volunteer during junior and senior high school, as well as volunteering as a "candy striper" at a local Alexandria hospital as a teenager. She's also a member of the blood donor Gallon Club through the State Department.
Angela became a paid staff member with the Red Cross in 2007, managing a senior transportation program in Arlington, VA. She now works as a Program Associate in the Communication and Financial Development Department at the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region.
We love this rich Red Cross history and celebrate Angela's many contributions she's made throughout her life!
