TACOMA – The American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter is looking for everyday people who have performed extraordinary deeds in Pierce County. Do you know someone who used CPR to save a life, pulled a person from a burning building or went above and beyond to help someone in need?
On October 23, 2013, the Red Cross will present awards to local heroes who saved lives, exemplified the Red Cross mission or made significant, positive differences in the community in the areas of emergency response, preparedness and prevention. Past recipients include police officers, firefighters, members of the Armed Forces, teachers, children/youth and pets.
Help the Red Cross recognize these extraordinary people by nominating a hero. Nomination information and forms are available atredcross.org/wa/tacoma/news-
Proceeds from the Heroes Breakfast help support local Red Cross programs and services.
The American Red Cross is a non-profit, humanitarian agency dedicated to helping make families and communities safer at home and around the world. All disaster assistance is free, made possible by the voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. For more information, please visit www.redcross.org/wa/
