Red Cross Greater Chesapeake Region - Volunteer of the Month - John Brenner

John Brenner works tirelessly for the American Red Cross of Delmarva on the Lower Shore. John has been instrumental in forming our spiritual care team and developing our disaster mental health capabilities. He serves as a volunteer leader for government relations and attends countless meetings of various Local Emergency Planning Committees and emergency management agencies.

During the Superstorm Sandy response in Crisfield, Maryland, John took the lead in ensuring that the Red Cross was meeting the needs of our clients and served on the Long Term Recovery committee for Somerset County. Still today, three years later, John is helping to coordinate preparedness education for families returning to housing for the first time since the storm.

John continually dedicates at least five days a week to come into the office to provide assistance and his experience provides tremendous support to all of the Delmarva volunteers. Thank you, John, for all that you do!
