Senate Honors “American Red Cross Month”

 

Listen

The Senate today adopted a Resolution introduced by Senator Randy Vulakovich designating March 2018 as “American Red Cross Month” in Pennsylvania.

Senate Resolution 282 salutes the 137-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 2,116 disasters and provided direct assistance to 4,369 families across the Commonwealth in 2017,” said Senator Vulakovich, who serves as Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee.

 “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.  “As we commemorate American Red Cross Month, it is also important that we recognize the 6,265 dedicated Red Cross volunteers in Pennsylvania who gave their time and resources to aid their friends and neighbors last year.”
