Volunteer Spotlight: Mary Dorman

By Jenny Farley, Volunteer

March is Red Cross month! It is the perfect time to recognize our amazing volunteers who step up to aid those in need during disasters large and small.

When Mary Dorman was seven, her mother asked her what her purpose in life was going to be. She knew then what she puts into action now as a Red Cross volunteer and an insurance agent. “Make a difference.” She said, “I was raised believing that we need to take care of each other.”

Since 2007, Mary has volunteered in several roles including public affairs and as a member of the Northern California chapter’s board of directors. Her advice to those interested in volunteering? “Jump in and do it. I just love it. I love the people I get to work with and the other volunteers and staff.”
