Red Vross - Heroes

Nominate Your Hero Online

Every day ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in our community.

The Annual Heroes Breakfast will highlight the values of courage, initiative, compassion, personal responsibility, and humanity which underlie heroic actions which save lives and/or demonstrate an unusual degree of unselfish character. Money raised from the event will support services that are offered free of charge by the American Red Cross in Madison County.

The American Red Cross of Scioto Valley will be honoring our heroes on June 19th, 2014. If you would like to submit a nomination for someone to be recognized as a Hero, please check out the link to our online form below or download a PDF and send in to the chapter office.
