Not all superheroes wear capes. At the Red Cross, we are proud to work with heroes every single day to help families in your communities.

March is a time of hope and renewal. It’s also Red Cross Month. Since 1943, the U.S. President has proclaimed March as a time for the nation to support the work of the Red Cross.

That’s why this month we are celebrating the everyday heroes – our friends, neighbors, and family members – who dedicate their time to keep our communities safe year round. Whether they’re providing first aid training, responding to a house fire, or serving meals to families affected by emergencies, they make every month brighter.

And you’re a hero, too. Every Red Cross supporter makes it possible for us to prevent and relieve suffering around the country. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating Red Cross Month and offer your vital support again.

Thanks for being our heroes,
Gail McGovern
