MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 9, 2016) - Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page proclaimed March 2016 as American Red Cross Month at yesterday's Town Council Meeting. She read the following proclamation:
WHEREAS, American Red Cross Month is a special time to recognize and thank our Everyday Heroes – those who reach out to help people in need; and
WHEREAS, American Red Cross heroes help disaster victims recover. They give blood to help a hospital patient. They brighten the day of an injured service member. They step forward to help someone having a heart attack; and
WHEREAS, we would like to remember our heroes here in Mount Pleasant who help people in need. They work tirelessly to assist their neighbors when they need a helping hand; and
WHEREAS, across the country and around the world, the American Red Cross responded to disasters. When an injured service member ended up in a hospital far from home, the American Red Cross offered comfort. When a hospital patient needed blood, American Red Cross blood donors helped them. When a lifeguard jumped in to save a drowning child or someone stepped up to help a heart attack victim, the American Red Cross was there, and
WHEREAS, we dedicate the month of March to all those who support the American Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies. Our community depends on the American Red Cross, which relies on donations of time, money and blood to fulfill its humanitarian mission.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Linda Page, Mayor of the Town of Mount Pleasant, do hereby proclaim March 2016 as American Red Cross Month and encourage all Americans to support this organization and its noble humanitarian mission.
