Volunteer Spotlight

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) Program spotlights volunteers that highlight the MRC Program's mission; underscore the importance of volunteerism; and promote collaboration at the local, state, and national levels. New spotlights will be added to illustrate the work being performed throughout the nation by MRC volunteers.

Summer 2017

Jimmie West is a volunteer with the Brazoria County MRC who selflessly gave of his time and talents during the Brazoria County MRC’s 2016 shelter operations. He spent over 260 hours helping flood victims who were displaced from their homes. As the unit began to support shelter operations, Jimmie was eager to lend a hand to help whether it was to cover shifts in need of volunteers, train new volunteers and/or leaders, lead the shift team, and more! Even through the most difficult and tense situations, Jimmie handled them with grace and compassion. He always goes the extra mile to put a smile on the face of each person he encounters. Other volunteers enjoy working with him so much that they would sign up on shifts just because he was going to be there. Jimmie was an amazing help to his MRC and community in its time of need!
