The Story

Every day the American Red Cross is there for our neighbors who need us. We’re there to help the family who has lost everything in a house fire. We’re there to connect deployed service members with their families. We’re there to provide life-saving training in First Aid, CPR, and water safety. We are able to do this because we provide a means for everyday people to reach out and help one another in times of need.


The Heroes campaign is a grass roots fundraiser to benefit local disaster relief and preparedness programs and services. Last fiscal year, we responded to 205 disasters in Western North Carolina and provided families with financial assistance that helped them obtain basic needs such as a hot meal, a warm coat, shoes and shelter from the cold weather.


Please consider joining the American Red Cross by supporting the 11th Annual Heroes Campaign which allows us to provide a way to channel the humanity in all of us. Through the Red Cross we are all empowered to change lives every day. We are empowered to transform moments of heartbreak into moments of hope.
