In March 2021, the American Red Cross of Massachusetts launched the inaugural Heroes Breakfast, Boston. This virtual gathering, chaired by Bob Reynolds, President and CEO of Putnam Investments, honored heroes among us – men and women on the frontlines of the Coronavirus pandemic and beyond - exemplary individuals exhibiting extraordinary acts of courage, kindness and service.
The Heroes Breakfast will be a marquee gathering in Boston for years to come and we thank all those who were able to join us in honoring these unsung leaders. The momentous virtual launch of this event took place on the one-year anniversary of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
