Join Us To Celebrate Acts of Courage!
As a community leader in emergency preparedness and response, the American Red Cross presents the Acts of Courage Awards to local individuals who have acted courageously in a time of emergency. Often at great risk to their own personal safety and well-being, these ordinary individuals have acted in a heroic manner by reaching out to help others in times of greatest need. Due to their courage, tragedies were averted and lives were saved.
Each year, the Red Cross presents the Acts of Courage Awards to those residents of Columbiana, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Summit and Trumbull Counties who have acted selflessly in a time of emergency. And this year will be no different, even if it is a little dissimilar, as this year’s event will take place on a virtual platform, during the lunch hour, on Thursday, March 4, 2021.
In addition to honoring local residents who have shown courage, coolness and kindness during a time of emergency, the Red Cross will be honoring Nick and Cindy Browning with the H. Peter Burg Community Leadership Award and Greg and Alice Greenwood with the Spirit of the Red Cross Award.
