The Pitt County chapter of the American Red Cross kicked off its Heroes Campaign Thursday night.
The Heroes Campaign is a fundraising effort that challenges individuals, businesses, and organizations to pledge to raise $1,250 throughout the month of March.
All of the money raised will stay local. It helps to provide victims of disasters with things like clothing, shelter, and food.
The event was held Thursday night at Winslow's Deli in downtown Greenville.
If you didn't make it to the event, the Red Cross encourages you to get involved by contacting them at their office in Greenville.
