American Red Cross hosing "Zero2Hero" event


CHAMPAIGN - American Red Cross officials are encouraging citizens who wish to volunteer for the organization to attend a special "Zero2Hero" event beginning March 4.

The "Zero2Hero" event will be held from March 4 through March 6 in Champaign.  Officials say participants will take the fast track to becoming a Red Cross disaster volunteer, as the entire process is condensed into just one weekend.

This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.  If you would like to register, or for more information about Red Cross volunteer opportunities, call (309) 662-0500, ext. 7428, or email
