Each year at the Heroes recognition event, the American Red Cross of the Silicon Valley salutes local community members, who exemplify the values of the Red Cross by saving a life, performing an extraordinary act of compassion, or demonstrating an exceptional spirit of giving. Heroes Centennial 2017 will also honor the contribution of local Red Cross volunteers over the past 100 years to make our community safer and more prepared, and ensure that the American Red Cross can continue to deliver its lifesaving programs and emergency services in Silicon Valley for another 100 years.
