Dale Roberts, a native of Lewis County, is the Dunkin Donuts Volunteer of the Month for January 2013. Dale has been a volunteer with the Northern New York Chapter since 2008, serving as a member of the Board of Directors. A detective for the Lewis County Sherriffs Department, Dale says he saw firsthand the aid and comfort the Red Cross provides to victims, which in turn made him want to volunteer for the organization. Due to Dales Lewis County ties, his help was instrumental in another successful Dunkin Donuts collection box campaign in Lowville.
