We've all heard stories about the homes that are destroyed by a fire, and the family that is left without a roof over their heads. But what about the organization that helps that family get back on its feet? In Zanesville, and surrounding cities, the Red Cross gives money to families affected by fires. The families can then buy what they need. It is a great process, but sometimes the Red Cross feels the pain in their wallet. With that in mind, a joint effort by the Red Cross and National City Bank has produced a program where citizens can buy patriotic signs to put in their yards. The signs are $5 each, and they are on sale at each of the three National City Banks in the Zanesville area. Bank employee, Heather Deem, says the purpose of the signs is two-fold because they are both patriotic and they help to raise money for families. Cash and checks will be accepted for the signs. Checks can be made payable to "The American Red Cross" and can be deposited at any of the three bank locations.
