Faces of Sandy: Smiles

In the face of devastation, these people found a reason to smile, thanks to the Red Cross. Their hopeful faces warmed our hearts and souls. We are thankful this thanksgiving to be able to serve, to be able to reach out and help someone in the time of need. Our volunteers and donors made this possible. Thanks again!
