The Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Region honors Volunteer of the Month Deborah Hines
BALTIMORE, Md. (April 4, 2017) – April is National Volunteer Month. The Red Cross celebrates by honoring its volunteers, one of which is Deborah Hines; who is the Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Region’s volunteer of the month.
Deborah Hines has been volunteering for the American Red Cross since 2013. She gives generously of her time every week on Tuesdays to help with various clerical projects. Occasionally Deborah helps out at blood drives as well.
Deborah was born in Baltimore and retired from the FBI in Washington, DC after 30 years of service to our country. She is a mother and grandmother of two.
One of Deborah’s goals when she retired was to continue to serve and volunteer her time and lend her talent to the American Red Cross. Deborah says she finds it very rewarding to “meet, greet and serve so many great people for a worthy cause.”
Volunteers carry out 90% of the humanitarian work of the Red Cross. They are the bread and butter of The American Red Cross. The vital work and mission of the Red Cross is only possible because of people like Deborah and you. Whether helping one displaced family or thousands, assisting with registration at a blood drive, or delivering blood to a hospital with an urgent need; it’s through the efforts of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.
