Lori Hilliard, the Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative who coordinated with the school said, " I was so impressed with the caliber of your students and their willingness to make a difference in the lives of others. Our collection staff made a special note on the operations record of how impressed they were by the student’s organization and dedication."
