As a disaster relief volunteer, Jill Rich is on call one week a month to help victims of fire, flood, and storms get back on their feet. Her job is to assess the situation and provide whatever help is needed: shelter, food vouchers, new clothes, and medical prescriptions, for example. A life-long volunteer, Rich also is the founder of a program that provides homeless people with basic toiletries and warm winter clothing. She funds the program out of her own earnings. Last year, she and her husband distributed more than 3,000 pairs of socks and gloves, as well as toothbrushes and toothpaste.
