The Greater Toledo Chapter of the American Red Cross has honored individuals and organizations from Lucas, Wood, and Ottawa counties for volunteer work and fund-raising.
The awards were presented last week during a luncheon.
“It's so important to recognize people for what they do,” Diane Dixon, chapter volunteer services manager, said. “They are our success in serving our community.”
Among those honored were:
Citations for outstanding community commitment went to the Kroger Co. and the 180th Tactical Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard for providing volunteers and for St. Thomas More University Parish in Bowling Green for offering space to hold disaster services training classes after Sept. 11.
