Help the Red Cross with Emergencies, Donate Blood.

September is National Preparedness Month, and the American Red Cross asks eligible donors to help prepare for emergencies by giving blood.

National Preparedness Month is designed to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, workplaces and communities. The mission of the Red Cross is to help the public prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. One way you can support the mission is to become a regular blood donor.
