Red Cross CEO and President Gail McGovern is interviewed in the newest edition of Chronicle of Philanthropy:

How has the Red Cross handled the current hurricane season?

Ms. McGovern: I am astonished at what our organization can pull off. Watching the disasters-operations entity in person is probably one of the finest examples I’ve ever seen in material logistics. It’s really been something. The way our volunteers will pack up, leave their families, and tirelessly help victims of disasters – it really restores your faith in the American public and it’s a beautiful thing to behold.
