Carolyn Gillis always knew she wanted to donate her time to help with the relief effort after Sept. 11, 2001. When Gillis learned that the American Red Cross needed volunteers, she turned to the local Glendale-Crescenta Chapter. "I knew as of Sept. 11 they needed bodies," Gillis, 64, said. "The state of preparedness was a concern on everybody's mind." She started volunteering for the organization's fundraising events until she discovered that she could put her writing, editing and design skills to good use. Gillis took on the task of writing and designing Red Cross fliers, brochures, thank-you letters and programs.
