Work of Red Cross Recognized During Red Cross Month

March has been recognized as Red Cross Month for more than 70 years. All of our presidents, including President Barack Obama, have designated March as Red Cross Month to recognize how the American Red Cross helps people across the country and around the world.

Governor Chris Christie and other government officials across the North Jersey Region have issued proclamations in honor of Red Cross Month.
