“During Red Cross Month, we want to recognize the valuable supporters whose generosity makes the work of the American Red Cross possible,” said Sharyn Whitman, CEO for the Indiana-Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. “In addition, Red Cross Month is a great time for people to get involved with the Red Cross, such as donating blood; signing up for a CPR, first aid or another Red Cross course; giving a financial gift that can really save the day when the next disaster strikes, or getting involved as a volunteer.”
