March is Red Cross Month.
NEWS CENTER Maine is joining forces with the Red Cross to celebrate, and we’re urging our viewers to be someone’s hero by donating blood or platelets, or becoming a volunteer. Through the simple act of donating blood or platelets, eligible donors can help save lives and become heroes to patients in need.
Throughout the month of March, we'll be featuring stories about Maine residents who have been heroes to others and stories of the people they have helped.
Put on your superhero cape and join us on Wednesday, March 28!
