As American Red Cross New Hampshire continues to support the relief efforts in New York, New Jersey and West Virginia following Hurricane Sandy, we are reminded that there are heroes around us every day, but do we know who they are and have we thanked them for their acts of courage and dedication to our community? Please consider someone you know as a hero and help us celebrate their acts of courage and compassion.

On March 7th, 2013, the American Red Cross of New Hampshire will honor community heroes, nominated by the New Hampshire community, at its Annual Heroes Breakfast to be held at Southern New Hampshire University. During the Breakfast, professionally made videos will be shown describing each hero’s heartwarming story.

“Too often local heroes go unnoticed. The Red Cross wants to recognize and honor these individuals,” said Maria White, CEO for the American Red Cross in New Hampshire. “We are pleased to recognize them for their generosity and caring deeds at our Heroes Breakfast. We could not honor these heroes without the generous sponsorship and support of companies, such as Unitil, who is our Title Sponsor and Corporate Partner for this event.

To nominate a hero you know, please visit www.redcross.org/nh and visit the news and events tab labeled as “Heroes Breakfast 2013.” Deadline for all nominations is Monday, December 3, 2012.

The Heroes Breakfast is a signature fundraising event of the American Red Cross. It will be held on

March 7th at Southern New Hampshire University, Dining Center Conference Facility, 2500 North River

Road, Manchester, from 7:30 am to 9:00 am. Tickets for this event are $25, which includes breakfast, and
