March is Red Cross Month, a tradition which began 80 years ago when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued the first national Red Cross Month proclamation — something each American president has followed ever since.
Each day, thousands of people – people just like you – provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world.
We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and blood. We learn or teach lifesaving skills so our communities can be better prepared when the need arises. We do this every day because the Red Cross is needed - every day.
Our mission wouldn’t be possible without these heroes. During Red Cross Month, we honor their commitment to help those in need.
