National Volunteer Week - Michael Jones

Michael Jones has a heart for disaster services. He is frequently adding to a portfolio of disaster training and service leadership. Since the fall of 2012, Michael has given 540 hours of service to the Red Cross.

He often signs up for volunteer opportunities before being asked by going on to Volunteer Connection weeks before our youth meetings. His eagerness to advance the mission of the Red Cross is amazing. As the Chapter Club Council Secretary, Michael dedicates a great deal of time at home tracking service opportunities and reminding the youth of upcoming volunteer events. He also manages the youth Group Share page on Volunteer Connection.

In addition, he has been instrumental in leading the youth in League of Mascot events around our city. He supervises this aspect of the youth council by making sure the youth are trained and prepared to represent the Red Cross as Mack the Disaster Dog, our chapter’s mascot. Michael is an awesome young man who is passionate about service, professional in all he does, and is a reliable volunteer.
