Neighbors Helping Neighbors Breakfast

The American Red Cross of Northwest Illinois is honoring community members for their extraordinary acts of courage and kindness. Do you know that someone who has saved a life, made our community a safer place or gone above and beyond to help someone in need? Someone who volunteers with people in-need or a neighbor who's changing the world?

Nominate a neighbor to be honored and/or join us for breakfast and an inspiring program to honor local heroes.
