The American Red Cross of Western Maryland is proud to announce that one of our volunteers, Loretta Mulcahey, was presented with the William Donald Schaefer Helping People award for best exemplifying William Donald Schaefer’s lifelong commitment to helping people. Loretta received her award from Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot during a ceremony at the Red Cross office.
Loretta has volunteered with the Red Cross in various states, countries, and roles over the past 40 years, staying active with many different chapters despite multiple moves as a military spouse. She has held roles with Blood Services, within Services to the Armed Forces, and provided Administrative support, most recently assisting with special projects for the Washington County office in Hagerstown.
The William Donald Schaefer Helping People award is given to those throughout Maryland who improve the community by swiftly solving a citizen problem through effective government intervention, directly aiding the most vulnerable in society, or creating a public/private partnership to improve the lives of Marylanders.
Congratulations Loretta and thank you for your many years of dedicated service!
