Red Cross Month

To The Editor:

March is Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross recognizes our Everyday Heroes who help their community by giving of themselves - the volunteers, blood donors, class takers and financial supporters who help us assist those in need.

March is also a great time to become part of the Red Cross by doing such things as developing a preparedness plan for the household, becoming a volunteer, giving blood, or taking a Red Cross class.

The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year in this country. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families; collects and distributes about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply and trains more than seven million people in first aid, water safety and other life-saving skills every year.

Here in Darke County, the American Red Cross responded to thirty-two local emergencies, assisted eighty-three military families and trained over seven-hundred people in lifesaving skills.

We thank those whose generosity enables us to continue our work, and encourage everyone to become an Everyday Hero during Red Cross Month by helping their neighbors.

Sincerely,
Lynne Gump
Executive Director
Darke County Chapter
