Red Cross Looking to Honor Everyday Heroes
Do you know somebody amazing? The American Red Cross is looking to honor some everyday heroes. The Illinois chapter is currently seeking nominations for the eighth annual Red Cross Heroes Breakfast and Fundraiser on April 19.
There are nine categories that will be honored. They include youth, education, military, public safety, senior, community, workplace, healthcare, and civic heroes.
"Really, this is just an event that honors a special group of people who are just everyday heroes that have done something extraordinary," the Red Cross' Wesley Lind said. "Or given a lifetime of service. And it's our way of showing that off to the community and honoring that."
Anybody can make a nomination. Just fill out and submit an online hero nomination form on the Red Cross website. Nominations are due by February 22.
