The American Red Cross empowers ordinary people to perform extraordinary acts in emergency situations. We trian. We mobilize. We connect donors and volunteers to those in urgent need of a helping hand. Whether it is a hurricane or a heart attack; a call for blood or a call for help, the Red Cross is there bringing hope to people in need 365 days a year.
That is why the City of Riverside, along with several community leaders and organizations from the Inland Empire are coming together to support HOPE 365 - Honoring Our Heroes; a special program and benefit concert for the American Red Cross. The evening will provide an opportunity to thank those individuals and organizations who responded to the needs of our neighbors in the East Coast whose lives were impaceted by Hurricane Sandy while at the same time raising funds to enable the Red Cross to respond here in our communty when disaster strikes closer to home.
