Red Cross Honors Sue Tarle: Oahu’s 2021 Volunteer of the Year
The American Red Cross is proud to congratulate its 2021 Volunteers of the Year! Each year, March is recognized as Red Cross Month, and the organization takes the opportunity to put a spotlight on the dedicated and hard-working volunteers that make Red Cross relief efforts possible. The Volunteer of the Year serving the island of Oahu is Sue Tarle.
Tarle joined the Red Cross in 2009 at the southeast Michigan Chapter and has become an invaluable asset to the Hawaii Chapter with her involvement in both the service to the Armed Forces and Disaster Cycle Services programs. Her exemplary work can be seen throughout a disaster response, from alerting the media to the Red Cross response at a home fire, to following up with those impacted with a phone call. It is a simple gesture that can go so far when emergency funds, crisis counseling, or spiritual care work is needed and requested.
In the past year, Tarle’s duties have expanded to include being a shelter manager and her experience has made her a natural in training her fellow volunteers across Hawaii, Saipan, Guam and American Samoa. Tarle’s commitment to the Red Cross is unmatched, and it’s thanks to volunteers like her with compassion and dedication that the Red Cross can succeed.
Congratulations and thank you for all you do, Sue Tarle, Oahu’s 2021 Red Cross Volunteer of the Year!
