Be Red Cross Great In 2011


Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.” Every January we remember the birthday of a great man by recognizing it as a National Day of Service. Take time this January to think of how great you can be.

Last year the American Red Cross of the Northeast Wisconsin Region did great things because you joined us by giving blood, taking or teaching a classes, donated funds or gave your time. The Red Cross and the people who make up the organization were able to be there when there were fires in our community, they supported military families, train people in lifesaving classes, they were able to give rides to neighbors who needed them and were there for other events that make us a community.

Thank you for your part in making great things happen.

Don’t forget there are many ways to serve your community and recognize the greatness in us all. The greatness Martin Luther King, Jr. saw. You can make a direct impact on the well being, safety and readiness of friends, family and neighbors in your own community.

From volunteer opportunities and local blood drives to safety courses and monthly donations, there are countless opportunities for you to touch lives, change lives, and make a difference down the street, across the country, and around the world.

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day take some time to take a Red Cross class or donate blood to make it a day on, not off. If you want to talk about other volunteer opportunities to be Red Cross great throughout the year contact your local American Red Cross!
