Red Cross Accepting Nominations for Everyday Heroes

Tri-State area residents are being encouraged to nominate someone they consider a hero for recognition from the local chapter of the American Red Cross. Nominations are now being accepted for the annual Everyday Heroes of Northeast Iowa honors. Nicole Breitbach from the Red Cross says they’re looking to recognize anyone who’s gone “above and beyond” for their community. In the past, several of the heroes recognized were people that helped save a life or prevent a potentially life-threatening situation. But Breitbach says not all of the nominations have to rise to that level. Nominations will be accepted for the next six weeks. After that, a group of Red Cross staffers will narrow the nominations down to this year’s winners, a process that Breitbach says can be difficult. The Everyday Heroes will be recognized at a breakfast to be held on March 14 of next year.
