For 132 years, the American Red Cross has been a place where people mobilize to help their neighbors during times of great need. And each spring since 1942, starting with Franklin Roosevelt, the U.S. President acknowledges that role and encourages volunteerism and blood donation by proclaiming March as Red Cross Month. This week, the Michigan House of Representatives adopted HR 34 (H1), which also recognizes March as Red Cross Month in Michigan.

More than 3.5 million people volunteered to give blood last year, and helped provide blood products for patients in about 3,000 U.S. hospitals and transfusion centers. In addition, more than 500,000 people a year volunteer nationwide through the American Red Cross. Those volunteers make a difference through Red Cross services associated with blood donation, disaster relief, health and safety training, support to military members and families, and international aid.

There are many ways to become involved with the mission of the American Red Cross. To donate blood or find other opportunities contact the Red Cross at or 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
