Our very own Betty Hendrix, volunteer extraordinaire, recently received the well deserved title of Volunteer of the Year from the Austin American Statesman.
Betty began volunteering with the American Red Cross in 1944, rolling bandages as part of the war effort. Now more than 66 years later, her dedication to the American Red Cross has not waivered. Betty currently serves as a family services caseworker and makes sure that families receive the services they need to recover from a disaster. She has also been a mentor and an inspiration to many other American Red Cross volunteers and staff members.
We are so grateful to have a volunteer like Betty! We simply could not provide the services that we do and fulfill our mission without the dedicated individuals that give so much of their time and expertise without asking for anything in return.
A special thank you to all of our volunteers — YOU make this organization successful!
