The Augusta Chapter of the American Red Cross 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. Last year, the Augusta Red Cross responded to 150 house fires and opened six shelters during the ice storms.
