During March, Red Cross Month, the American Red Cross recognizes blood donors, thanks them for their generosity and encourages others to join their ranks.
March was proclaimed Red Cross Month in 1943 by former President Franklin Roosevelt. Since then, every president, including President Barack Obama, has designated March as Red Cross Month. The Red Cross has been helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies for more than 130 years.
The Red Cross has two blood drives scheduled during March in Seymour: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 5 at Seymour High School, 1350 W. Second St.; and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 6 at the high school.
