For nearly 100 years, U.S. Presidents have called on people to support the Red Cross and its humanitarian mission. President Obama’s proclamation of March 2011 as Red Cross Month continues a tradition begun in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross has been helping those in need for 106 years. The nation’s largest nonprofit humanitarian organization, the Red Cross:
- Responds to an average of over 600 disasters every a year, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities.
- Teaches thousands of people lifesaving skills like first aid, CPR and water safety. March is the perfect time to take one of these classes.
- Provides a round-the-clock link between those in the military and their families wherever help is needed.
During March, people can join that effort by becoming a Red Cross volunteer, taking a preparedness class, or making a donation. With the help of nearly 2,000 volunteers, the Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross serves 2 million people in 25 counties in the Tri-State Area.
The Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross will be offering $10 off all 2 year CPR/AED Certification courses during the month of March to celebrate Red Cross Month. To sign up for a class today call 513-792-4000 or visit our website!
