Senate Honors “American Red Cross Month”


The Senate today adopted a Resolution introduced by Senator Randy Vulakovich designating March 2017 as “American Red Cross Month” in Pennsylvania. 

Senate Resolution 56 salutes the 136-year history and exemplary service of the American Red Cross and its Pennsylvania chapters.

“This resolution recognizes the important role this great organization plays in communities across Pennsylvania.  In fact, the Red Cross responded to 2,276 disasters and provided assistance to 4,373 families across the Commonwealth in 2016,” said Senator Vulakovich.

 “The American Red Cross has been at the forefront of helping Americans prevent, prepare for and respond to large and small disasters, and just as families and communities depend on the Red Cross in times of need, the Red Cross depends on the support of the American people to help sustain the foundation,” Senator Vulakovich said.  “The theme for this year’s American Red Cross Month is ‘Home Fire Campaign,’ with the American Red Cross partnering with local fire departments to ensure that anyone who needs a working smoke alarm can get one.  As Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee, I definitely support that effort.”
