March is Red Cross Month

March is Red Cross Month, and has been since President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a proclamation in 1943. The American Red Cross is dedicated to helping people in the United States, but also extends their humanitarian efforts throughout the world using associations with other Red Cross efforts. The organization has a rich history, beginning with Clara Barton in 1881. Inspired by the Red Cross network she heard of while visiting Europe after the Civil War, Barton and a circle of her acquaintances founded the American Red Cross.

You might only think of blood drives when you think of the Red Cross, but according to the organization’s website, today the supporters, volunteers and employees of the American Red Cross provide compassionate care in five critical areas:

  • People affected by disasters in America
  • Support for members of the military and their families
  • Blood collection, processing and distribution
  • Health and safety education and training
  • International relief and development

That means there are a lot of different ways that you can help out the Red Cross:

- Give blood or host a blood drive. The Red Cross is the the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the U.S. Unfortunately, this year’s winter storms and freezing temperatures have resulted in fewer blood and platelet donations, making the need for donors incredibly urgent.

- Donate. The Red Cross relies on the generosity of both blood and financial donors. You can donate online, by text, by mail, monthly, or in “honor” or “memory” of someone.

- Volunteering. There are so many ways you can volunteer! Help out in your community, at a blood drive, or be an advocate by promoting the Red Cross on social media.

- Get involved with a group or program. The American Red Cross has several groups and programs in place to support military families, increase emergency preparedness and more.
