Commissioners proclaim Red Cross Month

The Adams County Commissioners recently proclaimed March as Red Cross Month here in the county.

“Our community is full of everyday heroes who help others in need,” said Debbie Smith, the Community Executive for the Ohio River Valley American Red Cross. “They are our selfless Red Cross volunteers, blood donors, and financial contributors who bring relief to people facing life’s emergencies. During Red Cross Month, we thank them for their tremendous support.”

The Red Cross depends on local heroes to fulfill its mission. The Red Cross responds to a community disaster every eight minutes, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected by disasters. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families at home and around the world. It must collect 14,000 units of blood every day in order to fulfill the country’s needs. It trains millions of people in first aid, water safety, and other lifesaving skills.

In fiscal year 2015, the Ohio River Valley Red Cross responded to 165 local emergencies, in fact, it helped 550 affected individuals and families with emergency food, shelter and supplies. Locally installed 178 smoke detectors, assisted 51 military families, trained 67 people in lifesaving skills, and collected 4,610 units of blood.

“It’s easy to become a Red Cross community hero,” said Smith “Be ready for an emergency by creating a preparedness plan for your home. Test your smoke detectors and tell your neighbors to do the same. If you don’t have smoke detectors contact our office at 740-354-3293, for free assistance. Or sign up to be a Red Cross volunteer, or make a financial donation.”

Further information about supporting the Red Cross is available on redcross.org, or by calling 740-354-3293 or toll free at 1888-354-3293. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs.
