March is Red Cross Month

Volunteer opportunities available for your community

Most people have at least one reason to celebrate spring. The American Red Cross has millions.

Every March during Red Cross Month, the Red Cross honors the more than 500,000 people who volunteer to perform vital services for the 132-year-old organization, as well as the nearly 4 million blood donors who help build the nation’s blood supply.

The American Red Cross encourages groups and individuals to serve their communities through various volunteer activities including giving blood or participating in blood drives, responding to disasters, reconnecting families separated by conflicts and disasters, teaching health and safety classes and more.

There are many ways to become involved with the mission of the American Red Cross.  To donate blood or find other opportunities contact the Red Cross at or 1-800-RED CROSS.
