The American Red Cross Aiken Area Chapter would like to thank Hubbell Power Systems for donating $5,000 and becoming a Super Hero for the American Red Cross. With this generous donation, Hubbell Power Systems will be recognized as one of the Presenting Sponsors for the 7th Annual Heroes Jr. Golf Outing that will take place this Memorial Day on Monday, May 27th.
The annual Jr. Golf Outing, open to middle and high school-aged players, is coordinated every year by the local Red Cross Board Chairman, Don Cheeks. During the Outing, kids enjoy a round of golf, lunch, dinner, Bruster’s Real Ice Cream and an award ceremony with prizes. The Outing will take place at Houndslake Country Club in Aiken. Everything for the event is graciously donated by local businesses in the Aiken area, so 100 percent of Hubbell Power Systems’ donation and other sponsorships will go directly to support local Red Cross programs and services.
The American Red Cross relies on financial donations to support important programs in our community like disaster relief. After a disaster, the Red Cross meets the immediate needs that families have for temporary shelter, food, clothing and mental health services. Since the beginning of its fiscal year, the Aiken Area Chapter alone has responded to the needs of 70 families, helping 264 adults and children. On average, it costs $1,250 to assist a family of four following a disaster.
The mission of the Red Cross is made possible through the generosity of our volunteers and financial supporters like Hubbell Power Systems. Individuals and businesses who would like to learn more about making a financial contribution or registering youth for the Heroes Jr. Golf Outing, should contact the Aiken Area Chapter at (803) 641-4152 or at 1314 Pine Log Road, Aiken, SC 29803.
