Ameren Illinois will present the American Red Cross Serving Central Illinois with a $10,000 donation toward the Home Fire Campaign.
The Red Cross is preparing families to act quickly through our Home Fire Campaign. Since launching the campaign which includes Sound the Alarm in 2014, we’ve helped save 901 lives across the country by helping families create escape plans and installing free smoke alarms.
This critical work is made possible with our partners including Ameren Illinois, who have helped make more than 900,000 households safer in at-risk communities. Video Link: Ameren Illinois 2018 STA partnership with the Red Cross.
