Oral History Project Continues with James Greason & Ruben Brown on Fires, Volunteering and Life
James Greason has been a dedicated disaster volunteer with Metro Atlanta’s Red Cross since 1996. From the Olympics to Hurricane Katrina to everyday fire responses, this 91-year-old has helped hundreds of his metro neighbors with food, clothing, shelter and compassion. Mr. Greason’s conversation with Red Cross staff member Ruben Brown aired on WABE-90.1 last September and gives insight to his reasons for volunteering.
