The city of Phoenix was honored with the American Red Cross Greater Phoenix Chapter’s “Good Neighbor Award” at an awards ceremony April 29 at the Phoenix Zoo.

The city of Phoenix and the American Red Cross partnered in new ways to make homes safer, such as the Phoenix Fire Department helping the Red Cross install free smoke alarms. In 2016, the Red Cross joined a city of Phoenix effort to increase shelter capacity and ensure that shelters are accessible to everyone.

The Red Cross Greater Phoenix Chapter serves 4.3 million people across Maricopa, Pinal and Gila counties. For information about volunteering, call the Red Cross Greater Phoenix Chapter at 602-336-6660 or go to
