Shelley Reese, a volunteer herself, has always been a lover of Gary Rosenthal Judaica, even before she moved to Maryland and found herself living right near his working studio. Having been touched by cancer in her family, when she learned of The Glass Ribbon Project, Shelley marched right over to the studio and said, “What can I do to help?” That was a loaded question! Shelley is now the Volunteer Coordinator overseeing groups making glass for Chemo Buddy Strength Stones, sharing stories and fundraising ideas, networking, and helping distribute strength stones.
In addition to being Volunteer Coordinator, Shelley serves on the Board of Directors as Secretary/Treasurer and works closely with Gary on all aspects of responding to requests for help, keeping in touch, following up and making new contacts. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
