March is American Red Cross Month
President Franklin D. Roosevelt first proclaimed March as Red Cross Month in 1943 to raise awareness of the organization during World War II. Every president since that time has followed his example making this the 72nd year of America’s recognition of this group.
Each year the Red Cross responds to about 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the United States to include fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents and explosions. Mobile response vehicles are dispatched to communities after disasters to hand out food and relief supplies and to comfort people in need. They open shelters to make sure people have a safe place to stay, and assist people in the days and weeks that follow such disasters.
There are many ways to become a part of the Red Cross to include donating blood, volunteering time, and donating money to help the organization in their efforts. What better time to become a part of the Red Cross than American Red Cross Month!
