We are continuing a series of posts highlighting the awards recipients for the 2015 Hometown Heroes Celebration put on by the American Red Cross of West Michigan. Each year the American Red Cross celebrates the community heroes who inspire us through their commitment to service and their recognition of the humanity of their neighbors down the street, across the country, and around the world. The event will be held on Thursday, April 30 from 6:00PM-10:00PM at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. For ticket information please visit our Hometown Heroes event page.
The American Red Cross is pleased to honor Sylvia Daining with the Dr. Charles Drew Health Advocate Award, in honor of an individual who has dedicated their life to a cause that directly impacts the health and wellbeing of others.
Sylvia began her career as a Program Administrator at Wedgwood Christian Services. Wedgwood Christian Services aids youth and families through professional counseling and educational services. She concentrated on behavioral and mental health development of at-risk children and families during her thirty years of service.
