Celeste M. Harris

About me

I am pleased to have been invited to serve on the Winstn-Salem advisory Board for Catholic Charities which does so much to help our community, religious preference is not a factor. I have also enjoyed getting to know all the wonderful staff at the Americal Red Cross in Winston-Salem where I donate plateletes on a regular basiss.  Everyone should give back in some way for all the Blessings we have.  Many give so much, which motivates me every day to try to be a better person than I was yesterday!
