March is Red Cross Month

In 1943 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt proclaimed that March was Red Cross Month. Every American President since Roosevelt has kept to that tradition.

The American Red Cross provides disaster relief; collects blood and provides more than 40% of all blood products used in America; provides CPR and first aid certification; gives training for babysitters and lifeguards; and offers support services to military families. To celebrate Red Cross Month, consider donating blood, or volunteering your time.
