Last Week in Review
- Last week, we had an incredible evening at our annual Heroes Among Us #RedCrossGala. Congratulations to our honorees: BNY Mellon, John B. Osborn, Fritz Sam, Corion Evans, and Davyon L. Johnson. And THANK YOU to our donors who helped us raise over $1 million to support our humanitarian mission!
- PIX11 featured Gala honoree Fritz Sam on the night of the event and invited our two younger heroes to be interviewed in studio the next day.
- Last Friday, CBSNY, ABC7NY, PIX11 and Staten Island Advance reported on a devastating 4-alarm Staten Island fire where the Red Cross assisted displaced residents with financial assistance.
- Last Wednesday morning in the West Village, NYC Council Member Erik Bottcher installed free smoke alarms in his constituent’s homes alongside our Home Fire Preparedness team.
- Last Tuesday, for Valentines Day, we share the stories of two of our favorite Red Cross couples: Linda and Brian McMullan and Sarah and Conrad Meyer.
