Red Cross is searching for Heroes in Miss.
JACKSON, MS, Friday, January 24, 2013—The American Red Cross Mississippi Region has launched its 2013 Heroes Campaign. Held annually, it is a way for the organization to raise the funds necessary to help support local disaster relief, services to the military, preparedness and training, and other critical needs.
For generations, the Red Cross has been sending Heroes into Mississippi communities during times of disaster. In order for the Red Cross to meet our commitments to these communities now and in the future, we need citizens willing to be "Heroes" for the Red Cross.
The campaign goal is to involve as many people from local communities as possible. People of all ages can serve as Heroes. Heroes pledge to raise $1,000 each for the Red Cross during this grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign.
