Ordinary People, Extraordinary Acts

Each year, the Red Cross in Rhode Island accepts nominations from the public for recognition of people who go above and beyond in service to others, exemplifying the spirit of our own mission. These heroes are honored in recognition of their good works.

The Red Cross touches lives in our state every day through programs and services such as Disaster Relief; Service to the Armed Forces; and Preparedness and Health & Safety Training. As an organization committed to helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies in our communities, the Red Cross is honored to salute individuals who make a difference.

This year's Heroes celebration will be held Friday, October 24, 2014 at the Omni Providence Hotel.
