PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY)- March is Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross Mid-Atlantic Chapter stopped by The Hampton Roads Show to encourage you to reach out and help your neighbors in need.
The American Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year all across the United States, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected.
So far this year they have responded to the scene of more than 150 residential fires and helped more than 600 people in our region take their first steps in recovering from the fires with Red Cross emergency assistance such as food, clothing, lodging as well as health and medical services and supplies.
The Mid-Atlantic Region needs to collect 500-600 pints of blood every day to meet the needs of the region.
March is Red Cross Month
