Time to support Red Cross
March is not only Women’s History Month, it’s also Red Cross Month.
The Northwest Louisiana Chapter of the American Red Cross includes 10 parishes: Caddo, Bossier, Bienville, Lincoln, Natchitoches, DeSoto, Red River, Sabine, Webster and Claiborne.
According to the American Red Cross, President Franklin D. Roosevelt first proclaimed March as Red Cross Month 70 years ago. Since 1943, every president, including President Barack Obama, has designated March as Red Cross Month. The Red Cross is synonymous with helping people, and has been doing so for more than 130 years.
