Betty Grenig is an extraordinary person and a dedicated Red Cross volunteer. Betty is a Centenarian – one of those exceptional people who have reached 100 years. She started volunteering for the Red Cross in 1937 when she was only 17 years old. Her mother told her the Red Cross needed people to knit socks for the army, so Betty pulled several of her friends together and sat down to knit. Since that time, she’s traveled the world as an army wife and volunteered for the local Red Cross wherever she lived. Betty proudly wears her 80-year Red Cross service pin and lives by the words, “As long as you can do something, go out and volunteer!” Betty is still active at the Red Cross in Phoenix, where she assembles information packets for disaster teams every Thursday.
