For over a century, the Red Cross has been a community leader in emergency preparedness and response. Each year the President of the United States proclaims March "Red Cross Month;" local Red Cross chapters use this time to honor that longstanding tradition of heroism by recognizing local individuals whose extraordinary acts make them a hero. Our heroes personify compassion, selflessness and kindness.
The American Red Cross of Eastern NC 2014 Heroes Campaign will run through March and is an excellent opportunity for the local chapters to raise money that benefits Red Cross programs and services in their communities. The goal is to involve as many people from our community as possible.
People of all ages can serve as Heroes. Heroes pledge to raise $1,250 each for the Red Cross during this grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign which is held each March. If you're up for this challenge, you can raise the money personally, as an organization, or by hosting a fundraising event. All money raised here stays here.
