March was a busy time for us here at the Red Cross Los Angeles Region as we celebrated March is Red Cross Month.
On March 17, Red Cross volunteers, along with Miracle on the Hudson pilot Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, were recognized on center court at a Clippers game as part of March is Red Cross Month. Some 200 volunteers received free tickets to the game, which saluted the work of the Red Cross here and around the country.
