By all rights, Red Cross volunteer Tom Stark should be happy with the charity. An experienced Red Cross disaster volunteer, Stark set up a relief operation in St. Tammany Parish, north of New Orleans, the day after Hurricane Katrina tore through the area.
With more than 600 volunteers, Stark and his crew dished out 100,000 meals and snacks a day and housed 5,500 people in 20 shelters.
