Anixter Sponsors Annual Heroes Breakfast for Greater Chicagoland
On April 28, Anixter joined the American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois to honor
the 2016 Class of Heroes at the 14th Annual Heroes Breakfast. The 15 heroes honored
at the ceremony represent the true spirit of the Red Cross — from performing lifesaving acts
to committing their lives to service.
As a sponsoring member of the Heroes Breakfast, Anixter continues its ongoing support
of the Red Cross. This year’s breakfast raised more than $1.3 million, making it the most successful Heroes Breakfast yet. The contributions from the event will provide veterans with basic necessities, measles and rubella vaccinations for children, volunteer training and other lifesaving skills.
“We are again proud to partner with the American Red Cross throughout the year and participate in the Heroes Breakfast,” said Rod Smith, Executive Vice President of Human Resources. “We feel that it is important to give back to the communities where we live and work and honor those that are working to make a difference in the world.”
