St. John’s Lutheran Church in Princeton Steps up to be Heroes for the Red Cross

Pastor Daniel Heiderich is shown presenting the HEROES donation to Vicki P. Jenks, American Red Cross in NE Wisconsin Board Member and Disaster Action Team volunteer.

Recently, the congregation of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Princeton, stepped up and became HEROES for their local AMERICAN RED CROSS.  Hosting the food booth at the Princeton Flea Market, they raised $1,000 to be used for disaster relief and preparedness in Green Lake County.

The most common local disasters are residential FIRES.  When the Red Cross is called in for support, trained volunteers provide immediate needs ranging from personal hygiene items, a place to stay, a hot meal and a shoulder to lean on.  The Red Cross also supports first responders with hydration, food and respite.

Your AMERICAN RED CROSS–96% volunteers–arrives with hearts filled with compassion and a plan to support families in a very emotional time.  Thank you, St. John’s Lutheran Church and the Princeton community!
