CHRISTIANSBURG – The New River Valley chapter of the American Red Cross in Christiansburg will be hosting a Holiday Open House on Dec. 9, from 3-6 p.m. to celebrate the holiday season, the work of the American Red Cross and to thank the generous donors that have supported the organization throughout the year.
The American Red Cross plays a vital role in the community, and around the world, by providing assistance to families and individuals who have suffered house fires and other natural disasters, medical support through a blood services program, health and safety training, international relief during times of crisis and support to military members and families through their service to the Armed Forces division.
The Red Cross encourages the community to join them for refreshments and celebration where they can meet local Red Cross staff, members of the Board of Directors and area volunteers who serve the chapter. The Red Cross looks forward to meeting with chapter residents and donors in the service area to show appreciation, to provide information and answer questions about their services.
For more information or to RSVP to this event by Dec. 6, call or email Annie Harvey at 540-639-2140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
