The American Red Cross has operated in the Bay Region for over 93 years, bringing relief and support to victims within the Arenac, Huron, Tuscola, and Bay counties thanks to the selfless efforts of local volunteers.
 

The East Shoreline Chapter of the American Red Cross will host an Open House on Thursday, March 31st, 2011 in honor of American Red Cross Month.

The event will be held at the chapter office, 228 Washington Avenue, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm; it will give attendees the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the services provided by the chapter to citizens within its four-county jurisdiction.

All ages are welcome to attend the event free of charge and are encouraged to participate in the exciting hands-on activities, informational sessions, and children's activities (ages 10 and under). Refreshments and snacks will be provided along with the chance to enter raffles and win door prizes. The activities and contests will promote the chapter's service in disaster relief, military aid, community development, health and safety preparedness, and importance of local American Red Cross volunteers.
