Local Programs

Across the Region we serve 22 counties and their 4.5 million residents through local programs, campaigns and events. These include:

Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees

Since 1990, the Red Cross Festival of Trees has been the perfect kick off to the holiday season in downtown Wooster, OH. Local artisans and decorators donate beautiful holiday trees, wreaths, swags and centerpieces which are then auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting local Red Cross services.


American Red Cross

Each year, the Red Cross honors individuals whose extraordinary acts of courage and kindness make them someone's hero.
