LOS ANGELES, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles will be honored as the Outstanding Volunteer Organization at the 23rd Annual National Philanthropy Day Celebration on Nov. 12, 12:00 p.m., at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

This award is given annually to a philanthropic organization that demonstrates exceptional volunteer service and leadership with a mission to support and enhance the quality of life of the people it serves. The Greater Los Angeles Red Cross, with 1,400 volunteers, has provided disaster relief services, health and safety classes, and other programs and services to the community since 1916.

Fonny Oei, chair of National Philanthropy Day, said the organization uses three primary measures when bestowing this award, "longevity within our community; contribution to our community and how well the charity gives back to our community." She said, "In all three of the measures, the Greater Los Angeles Chapter has excelled."

Other National Philanthropy Day honorees include Jay Rodriguez, a member of the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles Board of Directors, who will receive the Outstanding Volunteer Award. A Red Cross volunteer for more than 60 years, Rodriguez was president of the Junior Red Cross in high school and has served on the Board of Directors for more than 20 years.

Established in 1985, National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is held during November and is designed to recognize the significant contributions of philanthropy by people and organizations. It celebrates the contributions of time and talent that shape numerous non-profit entities. NPD is now a global celebration and the Los Angeles event attracts hundreds of community and philanthropic leaders.
