The American Red Cross is honored to salute these unsung heroes and honor them for their acts of courage and heroism.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2012 Everyday Heroes Awards!

Our 6th annual Everyday Heroes Awards!!

Every day in our community ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in times of crisis. Some are professionals who go above and beyond the call of duty, and others are ordinary citizens who put in extra effort or perform courageous acts to change a life. The American Red Cross is honored to salute these unsung heroes and honor them for their acts of courage and heroism.
