SPRING INTO ACTION & SAVE LIVES
World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, May 8, marks more than 150 years of Red Cross humanitarian efforts around the globe. Here in the U.S., the American Red Cross has been helping people in communities large and small for more than 130 years.
The American Red Cross is the only humanitarian services organization that provides disaster relief, services to our military personnel and their families, health and safety training and blood services. You can be part of this humanitarian mission by volunteering to donate blood or platelets in May.
Blood donations often slip in the summer when regular donors are vacationing and school is out of session, but the need for blood is constant. Blood donations in the weeks leading up to summer can help offset this seasonal decline.
