East Tennessee Tiffany Circle Sponsors New Emergency Response Vehicle for Red Cross Chapter



The East Tennessee Tiffany Circle has sponsored a new Emergency Response Vehicle for the Knoxville Red Cross Chapter. The Emergency Response Vehicle, or ERV for short, is a fixture for disaster operations for the American Red Cross. It is a sign to the community that help is there during times of need. For the East Tennessee Chapter for the American Red Cross, a new ERV means that not only is the community being served, but their Tiffany Circle women are there when they are in need also.

The Tiffany Circle is a community of women leaders who advance the American Red Cross mission through a focused investment of time, talent and treasure by engaging women locally, nationally and internationally. Tiffany Circle members from across the country each donate $10,000 or more annually to support the American Red Cross.

The East Tennessee chapter Tiffany Circle has eight members, Crissy Haslam, Angel Knorr, Christy Phillips, Alycia Petrone, Margaret Petrone, Tonya Roth, Becky Thompson and Mary Franklin.

Money raised to purchase the new ERV came from the Capital Campaign for the Red Cross. The ERV will remain in the Knoxville area at the local chapter’s headquarters.
