Oxford EAGLE

Heroes Campaign

Celebrating March as National Red Cross Month, the American Red Cross of Mississippi is launching a statewide Heroes campaign. For almost 130 years, volunteers with the Northwest Mississippi Chapter have been heroes to people throughout the Oxford community, lending aid during times of disaster, supporting military families and training citizens in lifesaving CPR and first aid skills.
“Heroes for the American Red Cross” is a grassroots campaign where local business people, school groups, church groups, civic clubs, and individuals pledge to raise $1,000 or more for their local Red Cross chapter. This year, the Northwest Mississippi Chapter hopes to raise $40,000 during this campaign to support Red Cross services including disaster relief, assistance for fire victims, emergency military communications, first aid and CPR training and disaster preparedness information for our community. All money raised will support your neighbors in Mississippi. This campaign is open to all for involvement. For more information, contact the Oxford Office of the American Red Cross Office at 236-1282. (March 1, 2011)

        UM Big Event Projects

        Students will have an opportunity to give back to the Oxford and Lafayette County communities March 26 through the inaugural University of Mississippi Big Event. The Big Event began as an extension of UMSFusion, an annual service event developed in 2003 that encouraged students to volunteer in the Oxford-Lafayette community.
        Students can sign up to act as voluntary participants in service throughout the Oxford-Lafayette County community. The daylong projects may include painting, yard work, washing windows, cleaning or assisting the elderly. The university will provide lunch. One unique part of the event is that any community member can register a project for students participation.
        Registration forms are available at the Lafayette County Courthouse. To register a community project or to sign up online, visit www.olemiss.edu/bigevent. (March 1, 2011)
