Volunteer Spotlight: Pat Gilliland
In a disaster as large-scale as Sandy, local Red Cross chapters rely on the support of volunteers from other regions in order to put into action a complex relief operation. For Hurricane Sandy, Pat has been working as a mass care (feeding) administrator, a role that involves organization, problem-solving and an ability to stay calm in what is often a very stressful situation. Pat says she has dedicated herself to volunteering because of the help she is able to give to people.
