Red Cross Calling For Local Heroes ... To Be Honored At September 11th Heroes Breakfast

The American Red Cross of Rhode Island East Bay Branch is calling on the community to nominate local heroes to be honored as part of a September 11th Heroes Breakfast to be held at the Atlantic Beach Club in Middletown. The event will kick-off an East Bay Day of Remembrance, currently being organized by Newport Mayor Richard Sardella and Middletown Town Council President Michael Kehew.

The Red Cross is seeking nominations for people who live on the East Bay who have made a significant contribution to their community. To submit a nomination, please include the following information:

  • The Hero's name, age, address and phone number
  • The reason you are nominating that person to be a Red Cross Hero
  • Your name and phone number

Nominations can be sent to Deborah Miller, Manager, Rhode Island Red Cross East Bay Branch, in three ways:

  • MAIL
         Red Cross East Bay Branch
         1015 Aquidneck Avenue
         Middletown, RI  02842
  • FAX

  • E-MAIL

"As all of us remember the heroes of September 11th, we also want to recognize our neighborhood heroes who are making a difference in our community everyday," Rear Admiral Barbara E. McGann (USN Ret.), Executive Director of the American Red Cross of Rhode Island explained. "We hope everyone will be a part of this special September 11th Day of Remembrance and join us at the American Red Cross of Rhode Island Heroes Breakfast."

McGann says that firefighters, police officers and rescue workers from East Bay communities will be invited to attend. A firefighter from New York City has also been asked to speak at the event. All American Red Cross volunteers from the East Bay who worked at Ground Zero will also be participating.

For more information, or to become a corporate sponsor of this event, please contact Deborah Miller, Manager, Red Cross East Bay Branch, (401) 846-8100 or via e-mail at [email protected].
