Celebrating a Century in Colorado
"The Red Cross and its volunteers are heroes to countless people throughout Colorado, providing emergency services, supporting military families and training people in lifesaving CPR and first aid skills. They are always there to provide compassionate care to those in need."
-Century Chairs Don and Linda Childears

In 1914, just as WWI began, local visionaries saw the need to locate a Red Cross chapter in Colorado. Join us in 2014 as we celebrate a century of service, remember the many lives touched by Red Cross volunteers over the years and build the foundation for the Red Cross to continue serving Colorado for another 100 years and beyond.
