Honoring Bucks County heroes during Red Cross Month

    Help can’t wait when emergencies strike – not for the family displaced by a home fire or flood, the patient in need of lifesaving blood, or the deployed service member alerted to a family crisis at home.

    Every day, when our Bucks County neighbors cope with emergencies like these, they rely on local volunteers; blood, platelet and financial donors; and other supporters who deliver care and hope through the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

    This March, we are proud to honor these community heroes during Red Cross Month – an annual, national celebration started by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1943 and continued by each U.S. president ever since.

    Here in Bucks County, local Red Cross volunteers helped dozens of families displaced by either home fires or floods during 2023, providing emergency assistance to more than 100 people.

    In addition, blood donors across Bucks County rolled up their sleeves to help patients in need, with nearly 17,000 blood donations collected in 2023. Thousands more Bucks County residents took a Red Cross lifesaving class, learning skills such as first aid, CPR, AED and more.

    This support is made possible by you – the members of our Bucks County community – and we cannot thank you enough for your service. It truly takes all of us to care for one another.

    If you’re looking for a way to give back, join us in March. Visit to make a financial donation, schedule an appointment to give blood or platelets, become a Red Cross volunteer or take a class to learn lifesaving skills.

    With a donation on March 27th, you’ll be part of our 10th annual Giving Day ( to aid families affected by disasters big and small.
