Every day in Colorado there are events that disrupt lives and cause suffering. The Red Cross has been serving Colorado for over 100 years, providing comfort and hope to people affected by disaster, teaching lifesaving skills and supporting our nation’s military. In addition to Red Cross volunteers, caring bystanders, trained volunteers and professionals, as well as our military are there when others are in need.
We hope you will nominate those around you to receive a Community Hero Award for an extraordinary act or acts in the last year to be presented at American Red Cross’ Heroes Soiree taking place on March 9, 2018.

- Extraordinary act of service during an emergency, disaster, or deployment
- Dedication to preparing for or preventing disasters and emergencies
- Impactful service in support of our Armed Forces or military families
