By Volunteers For Volunteers: The Minot Public Library Exhibit

Dakotas Red Cross Library
People know the Red Cross, but they don’t always see what a real difference volunteers make, especially on a local level. - Evelyn Hildebrand

In celebration of Red Cross Month, volunteers have put together a large display at the Minot Public Library to recognize the dedication and effect that volunteers have through devoting time through the American Red Cross.

The exhibit will be up for the entire month of March displaying pictures of volunteers in action, various Red Cross health and survival kits, and a compilation of historic memorabilia, just to name a few.

Evelyn Hildebrand has been a Red Cross volunteer of more than 12 years.

“People know the Red Cross, but they don’t always see what a real difference volunteers make, especially on a local level,” Hildebrand said. “We wanted to provide a way for people to come and check us out.”

Hildebrand’s passion for the Red Cross and her fellow citizens shines through just as it does for countless Red Cross Volunteers.

Various local lumber yards and cabinet shops donated framing and other materials, and as always, the exhibit couldn’t have been completed without the help of our dedicated volunteers. Hildebrand and four other volunteers spent over two hours setting the exhibit up.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Red Cross. Becoming a volunteer with the American Red Cross is simple. Visit this link to get learn more: http://www.redcross.org/support/volunteer/getting-started
