American Red Cross of Rhode Island COMMUNITY HEROES

The Community Heroes Award, presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and the American Red Cross of Rhode Island, is a program designed to recognize the good works of "everyday people," to reward their good deeds, and to encourage people to help their neighbors. We need your help to make it a success!

American Red Cross of Rhode Island DO YOU KNOW A COMMUNITY HERO?

Do you know someone who has made a significant, positive impact on an individual, a family, an organization or an entire community? Someone who exemplifies the spirit of caring and giving in our community? You can nominate this person for a Community Heroes Award!

This person, young or old, may be a volunteer or a professional, such as an EMT or a Firefighter. A Community Hero may have performed a one-time heroic act such as saving someone from a fire or may be involved in an ongoing effort such as regularly visiting a nursing home or volunteering as a youth mentor.

As a Community Hero, he or she will receive:

  • Recognition at a Community Heroes Breakfast Celebration.
  • A framed certificate and an official letter of congratulations.
  • An invitation to the end-of-year reception, honoring all "Community Heroes" selected over the year.
  • Recognition in local newspapers, on local television and on the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and American Red Cross of Rhode Island websites.

American Red Cross of Rhode Island SELECTION CRITERIA

The Community Heroes Award recognizes everyday heroes of any age who:

  • Have made a significant, positive impact on an individual, family, organization, or entire community, either as a one-time act or an ongoing effort;
  • Have made a contribution to the community as an individual, or as part of a larger organization (civic organization, fire department, school club, etc.);
  • Are volunteers or paid workers (except employees of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and paid employees of the American Red Cross of Rhode Island);
  • Live or work in Rhode Island.
