Congrats to Larry Thompson for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Thompson_LarryName:  Larry Thompson

Nominating Organization:  American Red Cross Orange County Chapter

Honoree Category:  Human & Community

Why Nominated:  For disaster volunteers to be effective, they must know what resources they have available every minute of every day.  It’s not a glamorous job, but it’s absolutely crucial.  That’s why Larry Thompson is a valued member of the Red Cross team at the Orange County Chapter.  Larry played a critical part in the group who implemented our new computerized inventory system: TracMor.  Thanks to Larry’s efforts, our volunteers have a real-time picture of what disaster supplies we have in any part of our region at any moment.  Larry spent hours inputting data and developing user training.  He was also responsible for designing how data is managed in the system.  Larry is an extraordinary tech volunteer and we couldn’t do what we do without him!

Please write a note of congratulations below!
