Letter from Southeast Tennessee Executive Director, Julia Wright - April 2017

April is a busy month at the American Red Cross.  This month we will celebrate National Volunteer Month, and I am extremely proud of the dedication and hard work of our Southeast Tennessee volunteers.  We are excited to have so many enthusiastic new folks on board. On April 6th, we honored our volunteers at the annual volunteer recognition event, highlighting their dedication to the mission of the American Red Cross. The celebration doesn’t end there, as we will be highlighting our volunteers throughout Volunteer Appreciation Week April 23-29th.  There isn't a single day that we are not thankful for the service each and every one of you provides day in and day out.

Since July 1st, our volunteers have collectively logged 13,591 hours!!! The Tennessee average of how much money is donated to nonprofits based on hours is $22 per hour, so if you break that down the volunteers of Southeast TN have contributed $299,002 to the American Red Cross. That is beyond outstanding.
