Chapter Board of Directors to which Putnam County residents may be elected. Debra Hacker, Ken Heeke
and Ginger Scott were elected to represent Putnam County on the Wabash Valley Chapter Board of

   To help support this new partnership and to expand the existing partnership in Clay County, the
American Red Cross Great Lakes Service Area awarded the Wabash Valley Chapter two grants. A $30,000
grant helped to underwrite the hiring of Greencastle resident Christine Klinger as the Community
Development Director. A second grant was awarded to start a direct mail fundraising strategy in Putnam
County and to expand the existing direct mail fundraising program in Clay County.

   Compassion and generosity from local citizens have made it possible for the local Red Cross to empower
people with lifesaving information and skills, respond with caring disaster relief, keep local military families
connected, and save lives! Over the past year the Wabash Valley faced many adversities such as home fires,
flooding and tornadoes. We must remember that the need here at home is constant and great. Your
Wabash Valley Red Cross Chapter is vital, personal, and local. And, it is here because you volunteer your
time and give your financial support!

   Although space does not allow us to list the names of every volunteer and every donor, we personally
extend our deep gratitude to each and every one of you who throughout our 2006 fiscal year shared your
financial support and volunteer spirit.

   If you have not already joined us, don’t wait any longer to find out what you can accomplish and who
you can help through the American Red Cross Wabash Valley Chapter. –

                              I have been a Red Cross Armed Forces Caseworker for 10 years. Over that
  time, I have had the privilege and honor to help so many military families. I recall so many of their
  heart wrenching stories of death, life-threatening illnesses and sudden accidents. Some callers cried and
  had a difficult time composing themselves. Others were very stoic. But, with each call, I could sense
  the feelings of shock and despair. Every time I answered a call, I felt like I was doing something small
  but important to help the family deal with their real life crisis.

     Never did I think that the day would come when I would work my own military case. But the day
  did come. Last spring, my beloved mother’s health began failing. My nephew serving in the Armed
  Forces stationed in the Middle East was very close to my mother. When it became apparent that my
  mother was not going to survive, I worked the case just as I would had I been doing the casework for
  another family. I could have called another case worker; bu,t I just felt that I was the one meant to
  connect my mother and nephew. While my nephew was unable to come home, he was able to call my
  mother and speak with her over the phone. I saw the look in her eyes that conveyed just how much that
  conversation meant to her in her final days.

     Now, when I answer an Armed Forces call, I know that I am not just doing a small thing. I am doing
  a really big thing for each and every family, something that cannot be done through any other
  organization. Something only the American Red Cross can do. – Bonnie Lu

    International Services: As part of the International Red Cross Movement, we reconnect families separated by
natural disaster, war or internal conflict and educate the Wabash Valley about international humanitarian law.
   It takes many community volunteers and financial contributors to deliver the critical Red
   Cross mission of preparing for, preventing and responding to emergencies in the Wabash
        Valley. Below is a list of honors bestowed upon volunteers and benefactors at the
                     Chapter’s Annual Membership Meeting in May 2006.
