Meet Barabara,
Barbara says her favorite memory volunteering for the MRC was “having a gentleman tell me that if we didn't come to him with a special clinic, that he likely never would have gotten the vaccine. He was a farmer in Western Loudoun and didn't want to have to make time to travel to the Dulles Town Center.”

Barbara, we thank you for your dedication and endless supply of encouragement!

Shoutout to Virginia,
Virginia shared with us one of the biggest takeaways from being an MRC. She said:

“Teamwork— how a large group can work well together for the good of the community. Having been trained by a different County while I was their employee, it was good to put it all together.”

Thank you, Virginia, for your passion, and endless encouragement!

Introducing Robert,
When we asked Robert about how being a volunteer for the MRC has impacted his life he responded:

“Being a Medical Reserve Corps volunteer has improved my life by helping me think in broader terms about how we can serve our community in more different ways during emergencies. It's also made me more connected to a diverse community of the populations we strive to serve.”

Fun fact, Robert is part of our MRC Advisory Group in addition to being one of our many REVIVE, Until Help Arrives, and CPR instructors! Thank you, Robert, for leading by example and enriching our mission every day!

Say hello to Cheryl,
Cheryl tells us about her favorite memory with the MRC:

"I interacted with the public during the COVID-19 vaccination clinic and saw old friends that I have known. As a non-medical volunteer, I was able to try out many volunteer options or positions. Good variety and lots of fun!"

Thank you, Cherryl, for your contagious enthusiasm and boundless energy!

Meet Thomas,
Thomas shares with us that:
“I found the MRC does much more than support vaccination clinics. The training available for many aspects of emergency first aid broadened my knowledge. I helped during a police training exercise, which gave me a better appreciation of the skills involved. Working with the Health Dept. gave me insight into the scope of its work; as one manager told me, "We do babies to rabies."”

Thank you, Thomas, for your unwavering dedication and uplifting spirit!
