OSCEOLA COUNTY — People worldwide rely on humanitarian aid from the American Red Cross during times of great need. For 133 years, the American Red Cross has been a place where people mobilize to help their neighbors during emergencies and disasters. And each spring since 1942, starting with Franklin Roosevelt, the U.S. President acknowledges that role and encourages volunteerism and blood donation by proclaiming March as Red Cross Month.
“Wherever there’s a need, we’ll be there,” said Todd Kulman, communications program manager for the American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region. “That’s because our volunteers — like our neighbors — are across the street, across the country and around the world.”
