Continued Partnership With the American Red Cross

March 2, 2017

As a dedicated partnership and sponsor of the American Red Cross, Wright Tree Service attended the Central Iowa Heroes of the Heartland event on March 2 at the Iowa Events Center. Each year, the American Red Cross of Central Iowa presents awards to local heroes.

Heroes of the Heartland acknowledges ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. These individuals have saved lives, made significant and positive differences in their communities in the areas of emergency response, disaster preparedness and prevention, or exemplified the Red Cross mission in some way. Chairman and CEO Scott Packard presented an award to one of the recognized heroes, Lori Baker, during the awards ceremony.

Watch the video below to hear Lori’s story.
