INDIANAPOLIS - A local 10-year American Red Cross volunteer left for Washington on Monday.
Pat Rinehart used to work in an emergency room, but her heart for helping others has gone to another level.
In Washington, she will serve as a shelter supervisor for about three weeks -- helping those who lost their homes in the wildfires find places to stay.
Rinehart says she’s had hard times in her life, but nothing close to what these people are going through. She said this is her way of giving back.
This will be her 11th mission with the Red Cross. Rinehart has been all over the U.S., helping with recovery efforts for Hurricanes Katrina, Isaac, Gustav, Sandy and Ike.
