What Qualifies Someone as an Everyday Hero?
An act of heroism does not need to involve the direct saving of a life. In order to be eligible for the award nomination, the hero must live, work, or go to school in the tri-state area. An Everyday Hero is someone who has made a difference in any of the following categories:
Fire & Rescue
Health Care Worker
Adult Good Samaritan - 18 years+
Youth Good Samaritan - Under 18 years
Volunteer Community Impact
The American Red Cross provides relief to victims of disasters at home and abroad, collects and distributes nearly half of the nations blood supply, teaches lifesaving skills, and supports military members and their families. The American Red Cross, a charity and not a government agency, depends on voluntary contributions of time, money and blood to perform its humanitarian mission.
The American Red Cross of the Tri-States Chapter is a United Way Agency.
