Exceptional Local Volunteer Receives National Award for Service

The American Red Cross of Wisconsin is pleased to celebrate the national recognition of one of our local volunteers. Sara Horein was awarded the 2023 Presidential Award for Excellence during celebrations held at Red Cross national headquarters in Washington D.C. on April 26 and 27.

Sara has served the Red Cross for 11 years as a volunteer in several different roles in the Wisconsin region and at the national level.  She began her service as a Disaster Action Team (DAT) member in Madison, quickly moving into a DAT Team Lead role providing team leadership and supervision while responding to local emergencies such as home fires and flooding that displaced people in the community. A recent first-time blood donor, Sara has deployed to provide relief after Hurricane Isaac in 2012 and she has traveled the world on behalf of the Measles and Rubella Initiative. As Sara learned more about the vital philanthropic role the Tiffany Circle plays in Red Cross service delivery, she became an integral member of the circle.

The Presidential Award for Excellence is presented to an individual or group of Red Cross employees or volunteers who demonstrate exceptional performance or service in support of the Red Cross multi-faceted mission. Nominee’s actions must go beyond meeting organizational goals and expectations and be exemplary of the highest level of commitment toward the successful delivery of the Red Cross mission.

Red Cross volunteers play a vital role within our organization. Without their dedication, our mission would not be possible.  We are forever grateful for the immeasurable time, talent and treasure that Sara Horein lends as a volunteer.  On behalf of everyone at the Red Cross, congratulations and thank you Sara!
