Heroes for the American Red Cross

Northeast Massachusetts 11th Annual Community Heroes Breakfast 720

The annual “Heroes Breakfast” recognizes and honors those in our community who have shown courage, dedication and character through extraordinary acts of heroism and kindness. Please join us in saluting our 2013 Heroes. Their moving stories of kindness, courage, and hope are inspiring. These individuals, from all walks of life, are proof that one person can indeed make a difference in the lives of others. Each of our selected Heroes has made a commitment to another that is worthy of recognition and celebration.

The 11th Annual Community Heroes Breakfast will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2013 and will support the variety of ways the Red Cross mobilizes people to help in their communities, across the country, and around the world.

Please consider joining forces with the American Red Cross, one of the most trusted organizations in the country. For sponsorship or event information, please contact Frederica Doeringer at (978) 922-2224 or email Frederica.Doeringer@redcross.org.
