American Red Cross asks you to volunteer during Red Cross Month
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - For 80 years, March has been marked nationally as Red Cross Month.
They say it’s a time to celebrate those who dedicate their time and resources to help save lives across the world.
There is a great need for blood donations right now. Olivia Lusher is the Executive Director of the Red Cross of Northeast Indiana. She says every 2 seconds someone is in need of blood. She added that 90% of their help comes from volunteers.
They say if you donate blood in the month of March, you can receive a $10 prepaid Visa gift card. If you are unable to donate blood, they say you can get involved by volunteering your time or making a financial contribution.
