The Santa Clarita Service Center of the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles will honor local volunteers who have displayed heroic of humanitarian actions Friday.

“We are so grateful to all or our Red Cross volunteers — people who feed others who are hungry, clothe those who need clothing and help house those who need shelter — people who care for others: the dedicated men and women of the American Red Cross,” said Donna Nuzzi, council chair of the American Red Cross’ Santa Clarita Service Area, in a recent news release.  

The organization will honor the volunteers Friday during its Hometown Heroes breakfast from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Valencia Hyatt Hotel.

Nominees are selected in the following categories: First Responders, youth through age 17, adult from ages 18 to 50, animal, educator, medical, workplace, military, corporate, youth sports mentor and senior.

“The care of our clients takes many caring volunteers and we want to recognize, honor, and thank them,” Nuzzi said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca will be the keynote speaker.

Television news anchor Rick Chambers will be the Master of Ceremonies. The event will also pay tribute to the victims of 9/11.

Cost to attend is $500 for a table of eight or $50 for an individual seat. Seats will be available the morning of the event.
