Our volunteers are a critical part of helping people when they need it the most. House fire in the middle of the night? Volunteer. Local flooding? Volunteer. They make up 90-percent of our workforce and move mountains to ensure the safety and well-being of others. We’re fortunate enough to have more than 1,000 of them in our region and can’t express our gratitude enough…
This week, we’d like you to join us as we celebrate these incredible people during National Volunteer Week! Every day, we’ll highlight a volunteer and extend our thanks for their ongoing hard work.
First up is Paul Bumpus. Paul has been a Red Cross Volunteer for 47 years. We double-checked to make sure that wasn’t a typo: it wasn’t. Paul must really like to save lives (and we appreciate that!) because he teaches our First Aid and CPR courses.
“I believe in helping people in time of need,” he says. “As a Red Cross Volunteer Instructor, I can train others to help even more people in times of emergency.”
Thanks so much, Paul! We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
Stay tuned tomorrow to learn more about our hardworking volunteers who we love so much.
