Message from the Chair
Steve Cunanan - Kindred Healthcare
“I am honored to serve as the Chair for the Corporate Partnership Campaign; which includes the Ready 365 Circle, the Kentucky Region 100th Anniversary, Sound the Alarm and sponsorships to signature events, like Wrapped in Red. The daily work of the American Red Cross is often unseen and may be taken for granted in our community. Yet, in the middle of the night when a family has lost everything to a home fire, or if a soldier needs to get home for the birth of their child, or if a child who is battling cancer is in need of blood... the American Red Cross is there. Every nine minutes, the Red Cross brings comfort, caring and hope to those in need. For over 100 years the Red Cross has been there for those in need, please consider contributing to the Red Cross today.”
The Red Cross hosts special events to help raise critical funds for our many lines of service. Sponsoring an event hosted by the American Red Cross is a great way to make an unrestricted gift to the Red Cross, make your company a visible partner, and enjoy a top-notch experience for you and your guests.
Consider becoming a Ready 365 partner to help make sure the American Red Cross is ready to serve the community 365 days a year. You might also consider sharing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of your products, services or event tickets.
