Fagner serves North Carolina with Red Cross
As Hurricane Florence began to drench the Carolinas, Red Cross volunteer Sherry Fagner knew she would be receiving a call for deployment.
What she wasn’t expecting was an invitation to join 21 people from seven Red Cross divisions that were picked to be part of a leadership team.
Fagner was originally assigned to the Durham area with the district headquarters being in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was to serve as an assistant feeding lead for Division 1 during the Hurricane Florence relief operation. She was then reassigned to the Greenville Red Cross District 2 and she will continue to serve as a feeding lead.
According to the Red Cross, mass care helps to meet disaster victims’ needs such as offering shelters, food and family reunification.
