Throughout the month of March, we honor people like you who make the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross possible — the individuals across the country who turn compassion into action, helping others in times of crisis. Our Red Cross Month celebration is an annual tradition since 1943, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the first Red Cross Month proclamation.
Palmetto SC Region provides services in our Upstate.
As part of the world’s largest humanitarian network, Red Cross Red Crescent teams provide relief and hope in nearly every corner of the globe. Volunteers often come from the communities they serve, making us powerful change-makers. Together, Red Cross Red Crescent teams not only respond to emergencies—such as earthquakes, droughts, and health epidemics—but also help neighborhoods prepare for future disasters and ensure that children receive the vaccines they need to stay healthy.
