Northeast Georgia Heroes
"On January 1st around 3am we had a house fire...words can not explain the state of mind that this fire placed me my family in. No one expects a fire and not too many plan for one. We didn't have renter's insurance and had no place to go. The Red Cross stepped in...they came to the rescue with food vouchers and arranged bedding. I will forever be grateful for what they have done and the volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to be there for us. Once again thank you so much." The Cost family, Athens Georgia. January 2015
Heroes is a grassroots campaign in which local business people, school groups, church groups, civic clubs, and individuals pledge to raise $1,000 for the local Red Cross chapter to support families like the Costs. We appreciate your support.
