Red Cross Recognition

In September, the American Red Cross Twin Cities Area Chapter awarded its Certificate of Recognition to two staff with Dakota Communities, a non-profit in Eagan, Minnesota, that provides services for people with disabilities. Certificates of Recognition were given to both Maureen Desmond and Henry Nyenteah for using lifesaving training during two separate choking incidents.

In each case, Red Cross training enabled them to perform extraordinary personal actions that helped save the life of someone in their care.
