Community Relief Fund for Glasgow-Barren County will get new coordinator

GLASGOW — Stacy Janes will be stepping down as executive director of the Barren County Chapter of the American Red Cross on April 18 to take a new job.

Janes, a Glasgow resident, has been hired as the new  administrative coordinator for the Community Relief Fund for Glasgow-Barren County.

“The opportunity became available and it’s a great organization. I will get to do things that are more locally oriented. I like that idea,” she said.

Janes served as executive director for the Red Cross for 11 years.

“I’ve had a great time working for the Red Cross. I love it,” she said, but added it was time to try something different. “I’m going to another great organization and hoping to do good things there as well.”  

Emory Kidd, chairman of the Red Cross’ local board of directors, said, he hated to see Janes leave.

“I think it’s going to be a loss and we hate to see her go,” he said. “Whoever takes her place has got some big shoes to fill.”

A search to replace Janes has not yet begun, he said.  

As the new administrative coordinator for Community Relief, Janes will be working to assist city and county residents with various needs, whether they need help in paying rent, utilities or even food.

She will be replacing Tonnya Stephens as the administrative coordinator for Community Relief, who is stepping down due to health reasons.

Janes was already familiar with Community Relief and the work it does prior to taking the job. She often referred clients to Community Relief when they needed beyond what the Red Cross could provide. And Community Relief sometimes referred clients to the Red Cross, she said.  

“We do refer a lot back and forth,” she said.

It was Janes’ experience in working for a non-profit organization  and her good references that spurred Community Relief’s board of directors to hire her.

“We are thankful to be able to find Stacy,” said Mike Padgett, president of Community Relief’s board of directors.
