Tiffany Circle: Following the Lead of so Many Great Women Before Them.

By Sherry Holmes, Tiffany Circle Director

SONY DSCFounding member of the Northeast Wisconsin Tiffany Circle chapter, Aymee Balison, held a reception at her home on Monday, April 15, to announce the 2013-14 project for the Wisconsin Tiffany Circle Chapters and to introduce Tiffany Circle to women leaders in the Green Bay area.

Tiffany Circle is a society of women leaders and philanthropists. These women follow in the footsteps of a long line of women leaders who have helped the Red Cross serve the American public in times of war and peace with disaster assistance, blood collection, safety training and countless other community assistance services. The Northeast Wisconsin Tiffany Circle Chapter is in its inaugural year.

To support Blood Services, the Eastern Wisconsin Tiffany Circle members are committing to raise funds to purchase a new Sprinter vehicle.  This vehicle will provide more opportunities for businesses, schools and organizations who want to sponsor blood drives at their location. For more information on Tiffany Circle, contact Sherry Holmes, 920-922-3450 or sherry.holmes@redcross.org.

The Fond du Lac Fire Department and the Fond du Lac Firefighter Local 400 sponsored their 8th annual brat fry to benefit disaster services provided by the local American Red Cross Chapter in Northeast Wisconsin.  At every disaster the Red Cross is there, providing basic needs including food, shelter, emotional support and comfort kits at no cost for those affected by the disaster. The Red Cross also supports emergency response workers by providing food and beverages at the scene of the disaster.

Supporting the Gift of Life!

Marchant-Schmidt, Muthig Industries and RB Royal have combined to hold tri-company blood drives about every 60 days for the American Red Cross over the past year. Thanks to their support and others across the United States, the American Red Cross is able to respond to disasters both large and small and to provide blood for those in need.
