Today at the North Dakota State Capitol, A proclamation was made declaring March as ‘Red Cross Month’ in the State of North Dakota. At the ceremony, Adj. General David Spryczynatyk read the proclamation with Red Cross staff, volunteers, board members, and supporters in attendance.
"The Red Cross supports our state and communities so very well," Spryczynatyk said. "They are great partners and we truly value their assistance."
The goal of Red Cross Month is to highlight ‘Everyday Heroes’ who reach out to help their neighbors when they are in need. In Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama also federally proclaimed March as Red Cross Month as well, encouraging all Americans to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities, and by supporting the work of service and relief organizations.
“This March during Red Cross Month, we’re encouraging everyone to discover their inner hero by giving time to help a neighbor, make a financial donation or take a Red Cross class in First Aid and CPR,” said Red Cross Regional CEO, Judy Green.
