For almost 100 years, the American Red Cross of the Augusta Area has been a hero for thousands of people in our community, lending aid during times of disaster, seeing to the welfare of military families, and providing citizens with lifesaving CPR and first aid skills. Just last year our local Red Cross assisted close to 200 families after home fires, and provided over 10,000 services at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Medical Center at Fort Gordon. "Heroes for the American Red Cross" is a grassroots fundraising campaign in which each team member has pledged to raise an amount ranging from $100 to $500. The funds will be used to support Red Cross services such as disaster relief, assistance for fire victims, emergency military communications, first aid, CPR training and disaster preparedness information. The Red Cross needs your help to reach our goal. Any and all donations are incredibly appreciated. Thank you!
