It's Red Cross Month, and the organization is lending a hand to veterans and their families by declaring March 27 Veterans Assistance Day.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., representatives from the VA Hospital will be at the Red Cross offering services including health screenings and opportunities to review their benefits.

40 vendors will also be there to provide veterans with housing, education, employment, financial and legal assistance.

The Red Cross is located at 2111 Dana Avenue. Veterans are asked to bring their military identification to the event.
