The American Red Cross Chestnut Ridge Chapter, which covers Armstrong, Fayette, Indiana, and Westmoreland Counties, received a $10,000 donation from the FirstEnergy Foundation to support the Red Cross’ Prepare Western PA Initiative. The check was presented to Red Cross Chestnut Ridge Executive Director Dana Bauer by West Penn Power Director of Operations Services and Chestnut Ridge Board Member Chad Stoneking.

“The Red Cross Prepare Western PA Initiative strives to strengthen our disaster response systems and capacity, engage and empower additional dedicated volunteers, and build community resilience through disaster preparedness outreach,” noted Bauer. “This generous gift from the FirstEnergy Foundation will enhance our ability to create communities that are better prepared for and more able to respond to human suffering in times of life-threatening crises and disasters.”
