Rice to chair annual ‘Heroes for the American Red Cross’



“We are very pleased that Dr. Rice will be this year’s Rogers County “HEROES for the American Red Cross” Campaign Chair.  I know with his leadership this will be a very successful campaign,” said Mark Ogle, Director, Rogers-Mayes-Wagoner County Service Center. “The campaign is the only time of year that our local service center holds a formal fundraising drive in Rogers County.  
“It’s success is essential in making sure that we have adequate resources available to respond to disasters and provide victims assistance with their immediate emergency needs,” Ogle said.  
Several Heroes have already signed up for this year’s campaign.  They are:  AXH Air-Coolers; BancFirst; Claremore Daily Progress; Hillcrest Hospital Claremore; HydroHoist Marine Group; Jo Bostick; NOREN (Northeastern Oklahoma Real Estate Network); Pelco Structural, L.L.C.; RCB Bank; Rogers State University; Sean Burrage; SPARK; Suburban Chevrolet; and Walmart Supercenter.
