VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: November 2017
Red Cross, Dayton Area Chapter
Sue Smith LIVES UNITED by ”working with a great team to do the great work that we do!” as she volunteers with the Red Cross, Dayton Area Chapter. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Sue as our Community Volunteer of the Month.
Sue has lived in the Dayton area all her life and attended the University of Cincinnati. She now lives in the Centerville area. Upon her recent retirement, pondering what was next, she found herself drawn to the Red Cross and its work on disasters she was seeing on the news. An avid traveler, Sue has been to flood scenes in West Virginia and Texas in her first ten months. “We get out as soon as we can,” to disasters, including local fires (meeting immediate needs), and there are staff members on call at all times. As frequency of calls to action varies, Sue also helps out with various administrative tasks for the Red Cross. She says her friends are thrilled that she has found such an opportunity and know that her travelling inclinations are well suited for the position. She loves not having a set schedule and helping those in need. “It’s a fantastic organization!” She also says that for the retired, there is a position out there for you volunteering. She also volunteers at the St Vincent De Paul food pantry and is an usher for the Victoria Theatre Organization.
Cory Paul, executive director of Red Cross, Dayton Area Chapter, says: “Sue is a powerhouse of caring and competence. She gives of herself in every interaction and is an example of leadership and volunteerism. Sue is patient and kind and a wonderful addition to our already strong team.”
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Sue Smith as our Community Volunteer of the Month for November, 2017.
