New Hampshire’s American Red Cross 2016 Everyday Heroes Awards

The American Red Cross and Unitil present the 2016 Everyday Heroes Awards

‎Everyday Heroes are ordinary people who give selflessly of themselves to help and support others in their community. The American Red Cross is honored to salute our 2016 unsung heroes who are making a difference in New Hampshire.

This year’s honorees are being celebrated for their extraordinary contributions throughout the state:

A late-night drive turned into a rescue mission for Raji Gupta when he came across a burning apartment building in Manchester.

Nicholas Tolentino’s struggles with combat PTSD and TBI (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder & Traumatic Brain Injury) have become messages of hope and encouragement for New Hampshire Veterans.

The Class of 2015 at Profile Junior-Senior High School decided to do something a little more meaningful with the proceeds from their class-trip fundraiser.

Bruce Moran’s years of blood and platelet donations have touched the lives of over 700 people.

With a decade in between, father and daughter Douglas and Brighid Smith give the same gift of life to Brighid’s childhood friend.

These heroes are making a difference in our community and we invite you to join us in honoring and celebrating them at our 2016 Everyday Heroes Awards Ceremony.
