Senator Raptakis Recognizes Local Red Cross Volunteer at State House -- Coventry Resident Traveled to New York City area to Assist in Relief Efforts

At a recent ceremony at the Rhode Island State House, Coventry resident and Red Cross volunteer Jean Littlefield was greeted by Governor Lincoln Almond and recognized on the floor of the State Senate by Senator Leonidas P. Raptakis. Twenty-five Red Cross disaster volunteers received citations for their service in the relief efforts in New York City following the attacks of September 11th.

Littlefield is one of the Rhode Island Red Cross' most experienced disaster volunteers, having traveled to several states to assist in natural disasters. Trained in coordinating volunteers at a disaster scene, Littlefield was dispatched to Stamford, Connecticut to assist one of the many commuter communities devastated by the attacks of September 11th.

In total the American Red Cross of Rhode Island sent 25 local disaster volunteers to New York and surrounding communities to assist with the relief effort. They joined over 54,000 Red Cross disaster volunteers from around the country who together served over 14,000,000 meals to relief workers and provided counseling to over 200,000 people.

NOTE: IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER'S EXPERIENCE, PLEASE CONTACT SARAH BILOFSKY TO ARRANGE AN INTERVIEW.
