  • Heroes for the American Red Cross

    “Heroes for the American Red Cross” is a grassroots campaign where local business people, school groups, church groups, civic clubs, and individuals pledge to raise $1,000 for their local Red Cross chapter.

    Money raised from this campaign supports Red Cross services, including disaster relief, assistance for fire victims, emergency military communications, and first aid and CPR training and disaster preparedness information for our community.
