1.  A community leader dedicated to education, Jeff Pesek serves as the president of the Board of Education for J. S. Morton High School District 201. When not working to improve the schools, Jeff Pesek devotes himself to a range of nonprofit groups, including the American Red Cross. Founded by Clara Barton in 1881, the American Red Cross has provided humanitarian assistance to people and communities around the United States for more than a century. In addition to working within American borders, the organization partners with Red Cross groups around the world to help those in need in other countries.

2.  Recently, the American Red Cross and its international partners collaborated in the global fight against the Ebola virus sweeping through West Africa. To fight the pandemic, the American Red Cross raised over $2.5 million to better equip local Red Cross societies to manage, investigate, and increase awareness about Ebola. These funds helped enable the global Red Cross network, which includes the American Red Cross, to open a new clinic in Sierra Leone, a country in which nearly 2,000 cases of the deadly disease have been identified. Additionally, the global Red Cross has trained more than two dozen medical professionals to provide on-site care for Ebola patients.
