Five Simple Ways to Participate in Red Cross Month

Did you know that March is Red Cross Month?Every March, the American Red Cross recognizes our country’s everyday heroes who give their time to help people in need.

Lend a hand in your community.

·         Give blood. Help a patient going through a hard time.

·         Take a class. Gain information and skills to help out in an emergency.

·         Make a plan. Get your family involved and develop a preparedness plan for emergencies.

·         Make a financial donation. Your generosity will help people  in need.
