SWNY Chapter of the Red Cross thanks volunteers of TriDunkirk event
The American Red Cross of Southwestern New York, which serves Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, participated in the TriDunkirk Multi-Sport event in Dunkirk on August 26th. Participants from all over competed in running, cycling and swimming events.
The American Red Cross provided volunteers for setup on Saturday, as well as on the course during Sunday's event. "The Chapter would like to thank everyone who helped make the TriDunkirk event a success," said Kathy Burch, Assistant Executive Director of the Southwestern NY Chapter. "We were fortunate to have some of our Red Cross volunteers here to help, as well as volunteers from the RSVP program, the Boy Scouts, Cassadaga Job Corps, and many spontaneous volunteers. It was a tremendous help, and again, we thank everyone who helped!"
The Red Cross will be looking for volunteers to help at the Pain in the Alleganies event that will be held on Sept. 23 at the Allegany State Park Red House Area. "Volunteers will be needed for the Pain in the Alleganies event, so if you'd like to help out on September 23, please call the Chapter offices at 664-5115 in Jamestown or 372-5800 in Olean," Burch said.
