National Volunteer week is April 7th – April 13th, which means a lot to us at the American Red Cross because volunteers make up 90 percent of our workforce! Our volunteers are the true muscle behind the Red Cross. With endless compassion and dedication, Red Cross volunteers give us the valuable gift of their time as they help us achieve our mission day in and day out. That is why we wanted to highlight two volunteers from our Eastern Pennsylvania Region every day this Monday through Friday.
Lynn Muchler-Stash wears many hats, including Disaster Action Team Member, Pillowcase Project Lead, Sound the Alarm Team Member, Community Outreach Team Member, and Regional Orientation Facilitator. She has been an American Red Cross volunteer since June of 2013 and was nominated for this spotlight by Bill Goldsworthy, Executive Director at the NEPA Chapter. Here’s what Bill said about Lynn:
“Lynn is a member of our Disaster Action Team and our Lead Pillowcase Presenter. She has trained more than 2,300 students in our area last year in the Pillowcase Project, and has trained around 10,000 students in total. Lynn even deployed the last two years to help out at major disasters. She frequently responds to the call when a disaster strikes. She takes her role very seriously and spends a lot of administrative time making calls, setting up appointments and getting the materials together for her presentations. She’s very valuable to our workforce and we are lucky to have her!”
