Kathy Robello's home in Derby, Kansas was destroyed in the Andover tornado of 1991. She and her family survived by taking cover in the crawl space underneath their house. They saved their lives, but lost their home and all of their belongings. "That night, immediately, the Red Cross was there," Kathy remembers. "The volunteer didn't even know us, he just knew that there was a family with two younger kids who didn't have a place to go. That was the Red Cross—I knew that's what they stood for—they help people."
