NORFOLK -- March is Red Cross Month, although organization officials say there's always a need no matter the month or season.  

Take time out to donate blood or platelets. There's a need for Type O blood, which makes up only about 7% of the population. Platelets have only a 5-day shelf life, so donors are in demand. To find out if you're a good platelet candidate, call 623-4880. Remember, you can donate blood every 56 days or up to six times a year.

Of course, the Red Cross is more than blood donations. The organization is often the first to respond in times of crisis or natural disasters. Volunteers help people who've lost everything in house fires, hurricanes and flooding and more. The local chapter has volunteers still helping up north in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The 2013 Hurricane Season is coming up fast. You can help your Red Cross help those in need by becoming a volunteer or by making a financial donation.

To make a donation, volunteer, give blood or find a blood drive, call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to the Red Cross Website.
