SACRAMENTO, CA (February 28, 2023) — As climate disasters, blood donation needs and other emergencies upend lives, local community heroes are stepping up to care for one another.
This March, the American Red Cross California Gold Country Region is honoring those who make its mission possible during the 80th annual American Red Cross Month celebration — a national tradition that began in 1943 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the first Red Cross Month proclamation.
Locally, we are celebrating all that our volunteers do to support the Red Cross Mission at The BASH – volunteer recognition events held in three key cities:
March 3 – Scotia Lodge, 100 Main St., Scotia, CA, 95564, 5-8 p.m.
March 16 – Manzanita Place, 1705 Manzanita Ave., Chico, CA 95926, 5-8 p.m.
March 30 - Sutter Health Park, 400 Ballpark Drive, West Sacramento, CA 95691, 5-8 p.m.

“When help can’t wait during emergencies, partners and volunteers in the California Gold Country Region rally together to provide relief and hope for neighbors in need,” said Sean Mahoney, Interim Chief Executive. “This humanitarian spirit is at the heart of our community, and we are proud to honor all those who make our mission possible during this year’s Red Cross Month celebration.”
Participate in Red Cross Month by visiting redcross.org to make a financial donation, give blood or platelets, become a volunteer or take a class in lifesaving skills, such as first aid, CPR and how to use an AED.
On March 22, you can also join our annual Red Cross Giving Day campaign by donating at redcross.org/givingday to help provide shelter, food, relief items, emotional support and other assistance for people affected by disasters big and small.
