Valley Viewpoint: Red Cross Month

March is Red Cross Month in recognition of the work done by the American Red Cross in communities across the country and around the globe – and of how we depend on public support to help people in need.

Thanks to support from individuals, organizations and businesses here in Central New York, the American Red Cross is able to respond to disasters both large and small; help members of the military, veterans, and their families; provide blood for those in need and teach lifesaving skills.

We want to thank those whose generosity enables us to continue our work, both here at home and around the world.

You can help by making a donation, becoming a volunteer, taking a class, or giving blood.

The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year in this country, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected.
