By Presidential Proclamation, March is American Red Cross month. Since 1943 Americans have recognized the Red Cross for the many ways they help people. The Red Cross collects blood (I'm a regular platelet donor) and blood products to help save lives. They offer First Aid and Water Safety courses. Babysitter training. Disaster Aid. Assistance to Military families and to soldiers. The American Red Cross helps a lot of people in a lot of ways. If you would like to become a blood donor or platelet donor, visit: www.redcrossblood.org For information on other Red Cross services, visit redcross.org

Support, volunteer, donate blood during American Red Cross Month!
