Paul Heinauer (right), representing the Red Cross, presented Al Bradham from Carpet Care Services and DisasterCare with a plaque on July 25 in appreciate for DisasterCare’s donation to help fire victims. DisasterCare itself suffered a devastating fire in October of 2010. Bradham kept the business open and thriving despite the complete loss of the building itself. He has since provided monetary relief to others suffering a fire such as his by donating to the Heroes for Fire Victims’ program.
