Albany - The American Red Cross gives volunteers a pat on the back for all their hard work.

Volunteers got awards and certificates at the annual Southwest Georgia Chapter meeting Wednesday.

Allan Russell earned the Bill Hamby Award for helping disaster victims, Gus Walters was named Board Member of the Year for going above and beyond the call of duty and Cynthia George got the Carl Langley Development Award. George says, "A pat on the back goes a long way and with a volunteer organization, the reward you get is seeing what you can do for somebody else."

The major Corporate Donor of the Year is Procter and Gamble for Camilla tornado donations.

This year, the Southwest Georgia American Red Cross Chapter has helped 600 fire victims and took more than 530 Military calls.
