Every now and then, an unselfish action on behalf of a neighbor, a co-worker or even a stranger can change another person’s destiny and, at the same time, our own.
In that moment... REAL PEOPLE BECOME REAL HEROES!
The Real Heroes Breakfast concept grew out of a desire to sponsor an event closely related to the mission of the American Red Cross. The Red Cross provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. This is done through the simple, yet powerful, process of one person putting their needs aside to help another. Across the nation, over one million Red Cross volunteers do this each day. And, right here in Western New York, ordinary people contribute their time and energies to assist those in need. In order to celebrate this spirit of humanitarianism, the American Red Cross honors individuals who have shown courage, dedication and unselfish character by their acts of heroism in our community.
This year we are proud to be able to host this event at the Transit Drive-In! Watch the event on the big screen as we honor our Heroes in a new, creative format that aligns with our current Covid-19 conditions.
