March is Red Cross Month

march_calendar_2016_GCDR

In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt first proclaimed March as Red Cross Month. Since then, every president has made the same declaration, offering the chance to raise awareness for all of the duties that the Red Cross performs, as well as recognize and celebrate all of the volunteers and donors who live the Red Cross mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.

To recognize this distinction and celebrate its message, the Greater Cincinnati-Dayton Region of the American Red Cross offers a wide range of events and activities during the month.
