March is Red Cross Month

For more than 70 years, March has been recognized as Red Cross Month by Presidential Proclamation, officially established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1943. The first proclamation read: “I request that during that month (March) our people rededicate themselves to the splendid aims and activities of the Red Cross.”

The same enthusiastic observance occurs today. This year, we want to inspire people across the country to be a hero by thanking a volunteer or becoming a volunteer. You can also #help1family on Giving Day  –  March 28, 2018.

The Red Cross is powered by volunteer heroes who have responded to numerous large and historic disasters in 2017. Become a hero in the Orlando community by joining with the Red Cross to give back to those in need.

  • Volunteer to help a family in need, take a first aid or CPR class, or train to be ready before hurricane season begins
  • Provide hope after a disaster and #help1family by making a financial donation at Donations can help provide urgent relief such as food, blankets and other essentials to people who need it most.

“As we recognize Red Cross Month, we are grateful to be part of this thriving business community of Orlando,” said Sherri Monroe, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Chapter. “Our membership with Orlando Inc. has opened doors to a network of partners in the private, public and independent sectors that support every aspect of our community.”

Volunteers, donors and business partners enable the Red Cross to respond to community disasters large and small, teach life-saving skills, support members of the military, their families and our veterans, and help make our communities safer and more prepared for what may happen tomorrow, and in the next 100 years.

The Greater Orlando Chapter of the American Red Cross is proud to serve Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties. For more information, visit or call 407.375.2344.
