March designated Red Cross Month
The month of March first was declared Red Cross Month in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
"Red Cross Month is an ideal time for people to show support for our mission," said Terri Dunaway, CEO of the Central Plains Blood Services Region. "Anyone can become an everyday hero by giving blood or platelets, becoming a volunteer, making a financial donation or taking a class."
To donate blood, call (800) 733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.
