To the Editor:
“Here’s to all volunteers, those dedicated people who believe in all work and no pay,” penned speechwriter Robert Orben.

National Volunteer Week is celebrated during April and the Muskingum Lakes Chapter is recognizing our own dedicated volunteers and partners, the people who make the American Red Cross run.

Each year, volunteers from Carroll, Harrison and Tuscarawas counties bring food, shelter, comfort and hope to more than 37 local families faced with rebuilding after fires and local storms.

Volunteers also provide services to members of the military, veterans and their families, including communications linking military members to their loved ones during an emergency.

Red Crossers teach first aid, CPR, swimming, babysitting, and other health and safety courses. They staff community fairs to encourage their neighbors to learn these lifesaving skills and organize celebrations to recognize people who use their Red Cross training to save lives.

If you’re looking to serve our community, become a Red Cross volunteer. Right now we especially need people who are interestec in military, disaster and youth services.  To volunteer, contact the chapter at 330.343.8633.or visit www.mlcredcross.org.
