“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.
Online Heroes is an exciting web component where individuals can harness the power of the internet and peer-to-peer fundraising through their individual Heroes for the American Red Cross Team.
The American Red Cross has joined forces with the Harlem Globetrotters as its official charity partner, to help communities across the country prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters big and small.
