Red Cross Heroes campaign kicks off

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The American Red Cross of Central Louisiana started its American Heroes campaign with the help of one hard-working volunteer.

Chris Everett is a client of the Arc of Rapides, and for the past two decades he has also raised thousands of dollars for the Red Cross.

Friday afternoon Everett and dozens of his fellow clients at the Arc came out wearing red for the event.

Everett does it as part of the six-week Heroes campaign, a grassroots fundraising effort to support the Red Cross of Cenla. 


"You know, we're very fortunate to live in a community that is supportive and very generous," said Mary McMinn of the Red Cross. "And it's always gratifying to know that we have that support, and the Heroes campaign just backs that up."
