Pelco is an American Red Cross ‘Hero’

CLAREMORE —

Pelco Structural, L.L.C., is an American Red Cross “Hero.”
The Claremore-centered company once again participated in the annual “Heroes for the American Red Cross” Campaign.  
Bob Portiss, “Heroes for the American Red Cross” Campaign Chairman thanked Phil Albert, president, Pelco Structural, L.L.C. for their participation.
In addition to the company serving as a “Hero” again this year, Phil Albert has served as a Campaign Captain during the campaigns, as well as the Campaign Chairman during the 2011 “HEROES for the American Red Cross” Campaign.  
All money raised through the campaign stays in Rogers County to help those suffering after a disaster, such as (but not limited to) a home fire or flood, with assistance with their immediate emergency needs (temporary lodging, food and clothing).  
Last year in Rogers County, the local American Red Cross service center responded to 34 fires, affecting 125 people, and providing close to $21,500 in direct assistance.  
For additional information regarding how you can assist the American Red Cross by making a financial donation, becoming a volunteer or donating blood, contact Mark Ogle at Mark.Ogle@redcross.org or (918) 344-8442.
