March is American Red Cross Month. It is proclaimed by the President each year to celebrate everyday heroes who help each of us fulfill our mission.

The Red Cross brings help and hope to people in need every eight minutes. According to the Red Cross, an average of 90 cents of every dollar the American Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need.

The Red Cross is in 187 countries and the American Red Cross is part of the world’s largest volunteer network.
