As we said goodbye to Tracy, we also introduced the Clara Barton Society. Named for the founder of the Red Cross, the Clara Barton Society honors individuals and families who generously donate $1,000 or more to Chapter's annual fund every year to support the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross. Last night, the founding members of the Clara Barton Society were recognized and presented with a pin, a small token of our thanks for helping us serve the Western New York community. To learn more about the Clara Barton Society and how you can become a member, contact Jerilyn J. Hickey at (716) 878-2383 or HickeyJe@usa.redcross.org.
