The province of British Columbia has officially proclaimed March as Red Cross Month. The Lieutenant Governor of B.C., the Honourable Judith Guichon, made the proclamation, recognizing the Canadian Red Cross as a reflection of the Canadian spirit of generosity, caring and selflessness. She also thanked Red Cross volunteers in Canada and around the world, who, for more than 100 years, have been working to prevent and alleviate human suffering.
A couple of weeks ago, the city of Kelowna also declared March Red Cross Month, as did other cities and municipalities across Canada. Red Cross Month gives Canadians an opportunity to find out what Red Cross is doing in their community, and how they can get involved.
