Lissette first heard about the opportunity to volunteer with the Red Cross through her job when an email was sent out to employees that the Red Cross needed Spanish-speaking volunteers for the Home Fire Campaign. Always eager to help others, she said yes right away to the opportunity. Home Fire Campaign volunteers go door-to-door to install smoke alarms and educate the community about fire safety. Spanish-speaking volunteers are extremely valuable, so we can help prepare Spanish-speaking families in our community.
