The Northwest Georgia chapter of the American Red Cross wants the community to come together for its efforts to raise money.

The chapter, which covers Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Murray, Polk, Walker and Whitfield counties, wants to raise $75,000 as part of its Heroes for the American Red Cross campaign. 

Some companies and agencies have already done their part. Nance Carpet & Rug of Calhoun made a $1,000 donation in February and the Bartow County & Cartersville fire departments conducted a bucket drive in November, raking in $15,000.

The campaign involves local business owners, schools, church groups, civic clubs and residents who pledge to raise $1,000 for their local Red Cross chapter. 

The Northwest Georgia Chapter hopes to raise the money to support its services, including disaster relief, assistance for fire victims, emergency military communications, first aid and CPR training and disaster preparedness information for our community. 

All money raised will go towards helping residents who reside in counties included in the chapter.

Several businesses and individuals have already volunteered to serve as Heroes for the Red Cross and they include Nance Carpet & Rug (Calhoun), Calhoun Drug Company, Papa’s Pizza (Calhoun), Cici’s Pizza (Cartersville), Midland Communications Inc (Calhoun), Coosa Valley Credit Union (Rome, Cartersville & Rockmart), Century Bank of Georgia (Calhoun, Cartersville & Rockmart), All Animal Care (Calhoun), Goodyear (Calhoun), Famous Footwear (Calhoun), Calhoun Elementary and Primary Schools and numerous individuals throughout the Northwest Georgia area.
