Baltimore, MD – The American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region announced the hire of Joseph Miletti as the new Regional Volunteer Director of the Chesapeake Region. Joe will oversee the volunteer program for the Region, including Western Maryland, Central Maryland and Southern Maryland.

Miletti previously worked as the Volunteer Manager for Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS). During his time there he managed 50 staff members and more than 400 volunteers. His duties consisted of recruiting, training, and managing all of the volunteers.

“We are extremely excited and look forward to Joe joining our volunteer staff,” said Regional CEO Scott Salemme. “We believe that his skill set will be extremely beneficial to the team and volunteers who embody the mission of the American Red Cross.”

Miletti graduated in 2010 from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with a Masters of Public Health.

About the American Red Cross Chesapeake Region

On average the American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region provides help to Maryland families two to three times each day after disasters including emergency shelter, food, clothing and counseling thanks to major support from donors to the United Way campaigns in Maryland. Each day the Red Cross also provides lifesaving blood to area hospitals; teaches lifesaving skills; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its humanitarian mission.
