Fayette: Boot Drive to Benefit Heroes Campaign

On Saturday, May 23, 2009, the American Red Cross, in partnership with the Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services, the Fayetteville Fire Department and the Villages Amphitheater will be hosting a boot drive for the benefit of the 2009 American Red Cross South Metro Heroes Campaign.

The boot drive will take place at The Villages Amphitheatre, located in the heart of downtown Fayetteville in the historic Main Street District. The Army Ground Forces Band will be providing world-class music in support of the U.S. Army Forces Command, headquartered at Ft. McPherson in Atlanta, Ga.

For 95 years, the American Red Cross has been a hero for thousands of people in metro Atlanta. Now, members of the community are stepping forward to be ‘Heroes for the Red Cross,’ each helping to keep the vital services of the Red Cross alive and well in Atlanta's South Metro Counties.

The South Metro Heroes Campaign is a grassroots campaign that takes place during the month of May, during which individuals, businesses, and organizations have the opportunity to raise money to support Red Cross services in Clayton, Henry, Fayette and Butts Counties.
