Red Cross Names New West Michigan Executive Director: Tiffany Page to Lead Local Programs and Volunteers
GRAND RAPIDS, MI, July 27, 2018 – The American Red Cross of Michigan recently named Tiffany Page as its new Executive Director for West Michigan.
“West Michigan means a great deal to the Red Cross and Tiffany’s local knowledge and passion for our mission adds a great deal of strength to all our community programs,” said Kimberly Burton, Regional Chief Executive Officer for the Michigan Region. “Local disasters happen each day. Our work helping families recover and move forward with their lives requires the type of dedication that Tiffany brings to all she does.”
Previously Tiffany worked with Catholic Charities West Michigan, overseeing community outreach and volunteer services. Her prior career experience includes leadership and management positions in the for-profit sector while serving as a board member for several local charitable organizations addressing human rights and social concerns.
Tiffany was drawn to the Red Cross by the mission of the organization and the passion of the organization’s volunteers. When Tiffany’s not working, she loves spending time with her family, dog and time at her family cabin. The American Red Cross of West Michigan service area includes all of Barry, Ionia, Kent, Lake, Mason, Mecosta, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Osceola and Ottawa counties
Last year, Michigan Red Cross volunteers provided food, shelter, comfort and hope to 3,532 local families who faced emergency situations. They also provided first aid classes to 121,277 individuals including CPR, AED, Aquatics and Water Safety. Ninety-one cents of every dollar donated to the Red Cross goes toward humanitarian relief programs.
Nearly 314,000 volunteers serve the Red Cross, helping staff blood drives, volunteering at veteran’s hospitals, teaching people lifesaving skills such as First Aid and CPR, responding to home fires in the middle of the night and so much more. Here in the Michigan Region, more than 5,000 volunteers help communities across the state, and when called upon, also deploy to assist in national disaster relief operations.
