Crisis Center is "More Brilliant"
Congratulations to Crisis Center of Tampa Bay! On Thursday, WEDU-FM, the PBS station for Florida’s West Coast, recognized Crisis Center with its Be More Brilliant honor in the station’s Be More awards ceremony. Crisis Center, which runs the 2-1-1 center in Tampa, established the Florida Veterans Support Line staffed by veterans working to assist their fellow vets.
Soon to be Appearing in Blue
Travelers Aid of the Inland Empire is making a color switch. The staff and volunteers were vested in red uniforms for years. The Ontario International Airport Authority is purchasing new uniform vests, wind breakers, scarfs and ties in blue. The new uniforms are due in this spring.
Volunteers Beat Subzero Chicago Weather
During the 2 polar vortex weather days in Chicago on Jan. 30 and 31, there were over 18 businesses closed within Chicago O’Hare International Airport because of too few employees. Even the UIC Medical Center was closed. However, Travelers Aid was fully staffed and over the 2 days, 21 volunteers came in for a shift!
