“I love to volunteer and help where I can. I have volunteered for several Hands on Oshkosh events where I was put with groups of people on campus and sent into the community to help certain organizations. I have also volunteered for the Boys and Girls Club of Oshkosh and I was an intern this past spring semester at the Oshkosh Seniors Center.  These volunteer opportunities have led me to work with diverse age groups and help with a variety of projects that were rewarding to see the impact that I can do to help.”

Although this is Kendall’s first time interning with the Red Cross, she has been aware of their mission and services for a while. When she was younger, she obtained her babysitting certification through the Red Cross. Now that Kendall is an intern with the Red Cross, she’s excited to assist in carrying out the mission, stating:

“The American Red Cross is an interest to me because I wish to help, inform, and be there for people and communities after a disaster has struck or to inform people with possible resources before a disaster occurs. I am really excited to see what I can learn and give during this summer internship.”

Post college Kendall plans to continue her education with a focus on social work . She then hopes to pursue a career in counseling, specifically helping those affected by disasters and trauma.

The Red Cross is grateful to have Kendall as an intern, and to be a part of her educational experience. To start volunteering like Kendall, please visit redcross.org/volunteer.

 

 

 

 

 

Get to know: Cassie DeClerc, Summer Intern

By: Cassie DeClerc, American Red Cross Intern

hb photoMy name is Cassie DeClerc and I am a Summer Intern for the American Red Cross of Northeast Wisconsin Chapter.

I am currently a senior (with 1 semester left!!!) at Evangel University in Springfield Missouri. I am majoring in Non-Profit Business and have a huge heart for helping people.

A bit about me: I was born and raised in Green Bay, and graduated from West High School. (Go Wildcats!) I love anything to do with the outdoors. Fishing, camping, hiking, I love it all. I am a die-hard sports fanatic and absolutely love the Packers and Badgers. I also enjoy running and playing almost any sport there is.

I’m excited to be interning with the Red Cross this summer and working with the wonderful people of Northeast Wisconsin! I cannot wait to learn about event planning and scheduling along with gathering great minds to accomplish a common goal.

“NEW” Red Cross Intern says hello!

Hello NEW Red Cross Blog followers, this is your new intern speaking. My name is Lauren Lindstrom, and will be helping out with the communication and social media aspects of the NEW Red Cross.

Reppin’ Green Bay in the Windy City

I recently completed my sophomore year at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., and am home for the summer in my native Green Bay. At school, I study Journalism with a minor in Spanish. I hope to use both my writing background and Spanish language abilities to serve the Green Bay area this summer.

I have been writing for the Red Cross for about a month, but I would like to formally introduce myself. I am very excited for the opportunity to not only improve my writing and social media skills, but also get the chance to work for an amazing and historic organization such as the American Red Cross.

A little about me- I am 20, a lover of Mexican food and Spanish music, and Wisconsin sports (except the Badgers, I bleed Northwestern purple!). Door County is my second home and I spent a large portion of my summers growing up at my grandparents’ place in Sturgeon Bay. I am the older of two girls and love to cheer on my 17-year-old sister in soccer.

Cheering on my sister, Megan, and the De Pere girls soccer team to finishing State Runners-up.

I had lived in the Green Bay area my entire life before venturing off to Chicago for college two years ago. The transition to Chicago Bears’ land was rough, but I have found a few Packer Backers to cheer on the team with me while living in enemy territory.

This will be a busy summer for me. In addition to the Red Cross, I am a news intern at WFRV-TV and a freelance writer for the De Pere Journal. I am also in the process of moving into my first apartment down in Evanston for the following year. I am beyond exited to have this learning opportunity and work with such an amazing organization.  I look forward to meet as many of the amazing volunteers we have as possible in the few months. I can’t wait to work with all of you!
