From client to donor: Margretha pledges to be a Hero!

A few days ago, we shared with you Margretha Pinkney’s story.

Margretha Pinkney chats with Herman Sterling, the volunteer who worked with her in the days and weeks following the fire.

 

On Oct. 10, 2011, Margretha’s Huntersville, NC, home, was engulfed in flames, and her 9-year-old son, Nikko’las, did not survive the fire.

Since then, the Red Cross has been working with Margretha to help her find a place to stay, giving her assistance for food and clothing, and most importantly, providing her emotional support.

“The Red Cross didn’t make me feel like a victim,” she said. “I feel like a part of the family.”

In fact, Margretha feels so connected to the Red Cross that she has decided to be a hero for the Red Cross. That means she has pledged to raise money for people affected by home fires.

Most heroes pledge to raise $1,000. Margretha raised $1,000 in just 24 hours. “So let’s make my goal $,5000,” she said.
