Shantel Rose joined the American Red Cross as a volunteer in late 2016. She began immediately as a Blood Services Transportation Specialist, making many pickups and deliveries of life-saving blood and blood products each week!
More recently, Shantel has also gotten involved in other lines of service. She joined DAT in April 2018 and jumped right in. Shortly after joining the Disaster team, Shantel responded to support a shelter after the May 27, 2018 flooding in Ellicott City and Baltimore. She also assisted with canteening and distributing water at a Candlelight Vigil held in honor of the Capital Gazette shooting victims. Shantel makes herself available and has responded to many single and multi-family fires in Baltimore City and County. She enjoys assisting clients so much that she recently joined our Recovery Casework team so that she can provide longer-term support.
Shantel has completed more than 300 hours of volunteer service to the Red Cross in less than two years, an average of about five hours per week. Shantel is compassionate and a strong advocate for our clients. She is always looking for ways to be of service to the American Red Cross and the people we serve.
