The American Red Cross-Oregon Mountain River Chapter seeks nominations of community heroes in advance of its ninth annual Heroes’ Breakfast on March 20.
A committee of Red Cross board members, staff, volunteers and others selects each year’s recipients. At past events, as many as eight awards have been issued to youth, adults, groups, organizations and animals in the categories of military service, blood services, CPR, disaster assistance and life-saving events.
Ideally, the heroic act occurred during the past two years, unless the nomination is for an ongoing commitment to an effort that reflects the mission of the Red Cross.
Proceeds from the event support the chapter.
Nominations are due by Jan. 14. Nomination forms are available at www.mountainriver.redcross.org.
