Volunteer of the Month – November 2001

Mary Jones

This month’s Volunteer of the Month Award recognizes an individual who supports Armed Forces Emergency Services (AFES).

These dedicated volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, aiding military members and their families by communicating emergency messages. We are pleased to present Mary Jones with the Volunteer of the Month Award for outstanding service as an AFES volunteer.

Mary has been diligently taking the AFES pager since 1991. In the midst of the September 11th relief efforts, she added to her responsibilities by assisting with Family Welfare Inquiries (trying to locate missing relatives of local families). She demonstrated sensitivity and compassion during every interaction with clients. As a caseworker, Mary is currently working with those same families to provide financial support or help meet any of their other needs following the loss of a loved one.

Please join us in congratulating Mary on the Volunteer of the Month Award and thanking her for her dedication to Red Cross.
