BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A flag was raised to declare March as American Red Cross Month in Broome County.
Local representatives presented proclamations of gratitude to the agency on Monday
Volunteers who have helped hundreds of local families recover after disasters, from snow storms to floods, and collected blood donations were also honored.
"We have very dedicated volunteers who stick with us because they love the work," said American Red Cross Southern Tier Chapter Executive Director Colleen McCabe. "They love the humanitarian mission and helping those in need when they need it most."
Officials hope the ceremony inspires people to join the Red Cross and to help in any way in our community.
