It's Red Cross Month!
March is Red Cross Month!
Founded in 1881, the American Red Cross is a charitable organization that relies on donations and volunteers from across the country to carry out their mission. Whether it is disaster relief, blood donations, military family support, or training and certification in CPR, life-guarding, first aid and more, the Red Cross is committed to helping those who need it most. The American Red Cross is part of the Global Red Cross Network, the world's largest volunteer network found in 187 countries, according to The Red Cross.
Every year, March is declared Red Cross Month by the President of the United States. The American Red Cross celebrates this designation by honoring the "everyday heroes" who support and carry out the mission of the Red Cross by donating, giving blood, taking a class or volunteering.
SERVPRO® began a partnership with the American Red Cross in 2013, and became an official Disaster Responder partner in 2016. The Disaster Responder program provides families and individuals immediate support, comfort and assistance when a disaster strikes. Disaster Responders also help communities prepare for disasters ahead of time by participating in preparedness activities such as the Smoke Alarm Installation Campaign.
