Letter: Celebrate Red Cross Month

Celebrate Red Cross Month

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Longview community and the volunteers of the American Red Cross East Texas Chapter for helping our fellow East Texans as they face some of their worst days.

This March marks the 81st celebration of Red Cross Month, the annual tradition President Franklin D. Roosevelt started in 1943 when we honor the amazing volunteers who make our mission possible.

Every year, Red Crossers in the East Texas Chapter, encompassing 29 counties, assist families after disasters, host blood drives, support military members and veterans, along with their families and caregivers and provide first aid, CPR and AED training.

These community heroes step up, put on a Red Cross vest and help their neighbors in Longview and across East Texas become a more resilient community. Please sign up to join a positive community of service-oriented individuals dedicated to caring for one another.

You can volunteer, make a financial donation, learn a lifesaving skill or donate blood to help. Go to to learn more.
