The American Red Cross Celebrates Red Cross Month

“Red Cross Month” was first proclaimed in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and designated again every year by all Presidents since then.

On March 17, 2012 the Southeast Georgia Red Cross (Savannah, Bulloch and Brunswick) will celebrate 95 years of service to the and “You’d Look Good In Red.” The Red Cross is constantly in need of three things; financial support, volunteers and blood. This volunteer recruitment campaign will allow the Red Cross grow its capacity to serve within its 23 County service area. The Red Cross wants to recruit 100 new volunteers by June 30, 2012. There are many ways you can help the Red Cross as a volunteer; disaster services, clerical, fundraising, public affairs and much more!

Our community depends on the Red Cross and since it is not a government agency, the Red Cross depends on support from the public to continue its humanitarian work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar given to the Red Cross is put back into disaster services.

Who is the Red Cross? It is you. For without the precious volunteers who deliver the services to those in need, there would be no Red Cross

How you can help: Volunteer within one of our 23 counties, Be a Hero in Bulloch County, Purchase a Red Cross “Bows About Town” in Savannah, Become a Red Cross donor
