Will you be a hero to those affected by disaster?

Whether it is installing smoke alarms for those who can not afford them to putting boots on the ground during a recovery operation, the Red Cross and it's volunteers are there. It is all thanks to donors like you.

Your financial gift tonight will help our response and prevention measures in the Greater Akron and Mahoning Valley.

Acts of Courage

Each year, the Red Cross presents the Acts of Courage Awards to those residents of Summit, Portage and Medina Counties who have acted courageously and selflessly in a time of emergency.
