Do you know someone who has made a difference?
If so, please join us in honoring our community heroes by nominating someone who has done something extraordinary in your county. Throughout our community, ordinary people perform extraordinary acts every day. The Western North Carolina area American Red Cross needs your help in identifying and recognizing our local heroes.
The Salute to Heroes event will be held in Asheville in March 2020.
All award nominees must be from one of the counties within the Western North Carolina American Red Cross Chapter – Buncombe, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, or Yancey.
Nominees do not need to have any current or past affiliation with the American Red Cross but need to embody our seven Fundamental Principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
Nominations will be reviewed by a select committee of Western North Carolina Board Members, American Red Cross staff and leadership volunteers, and community leaders representing award categories.
Nominations will only be accepted through our online nomination form. The award nomination period runs from September 1, 2019 to November 15, 2019. Award winners will be notified by December 15, 2019.
For any additional questions regarding the nomination process, please contact Megan Robinson at email@example.com. Nominations must be received by November 15, 2019.
