Assembly Resolution No. 884
BY: M. of A. Rules (Lupardo)
        MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
        March 2020, as American Red Cross Month in the State
        of New York
  WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize that
the  quality  and  character  of life in the communities across New York
State are reflective of the concerned and  dedicated  efforts  of  those
organizations and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare
of the community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant  to  such  concern,  and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this  Legislative  Body  is  justly  proud  to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 2020, as American
Red Cross Month in the State of New York; and
  WHEREAS,  For  more  than  70  years,  United  States Presidents and
Governors around the country have recognized March as American Red Cross
Month to thank this vital humanitarian  organization  and  to  urge  the
public  to  continue to support its work through volunteerism, financial
contributions, or the donation of blood; and
  WHEREAS, American Red Cross Month celebrates the everyday heroes who
work tirelessly in times of disaster to offer the comfort of  a  helping
hand; and
  WHEREAS, The American Red Cross, founded in 1881 by Clara Barton and
chartered  by the United States Congress in 1905, is one of our nation's
oldest and most recognized humanitarian organizations; and
  WHEREAS, For more than a century, the American Red Cross, along with
its generous donors, volunteers and employees, have shared a mission  of
preventing  and  relieving suffering, here at home and around the world,
through  disaster  relief,  support  of  America's  military   families,
lifesaving  blood,  international services, as well as health and safety
services; and
  WHEREAS, In New York State, this esteemed  nonprofit  organization's
12 regional chapters, along with the New York-Penn Blood Services Region
and   its   Fort   Drum  service,  have  a  long  history  of  providing
compassionate care to those in need; and
  WHEREAS, On a daily basis, this remarkable  institution  helps  make
communities   safer  in  these  uncertain  times  through  its  disaster
preparedness and response efforts; its volunteers are always  among  the
first  on the scene providing food, shelter, clothing and friendly faces
for support; and
  WHEREAS, In addition, the American  Red  Cross  provides  nationally
recognized  training  in  first  aid  and  water safety, cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR), child care, and HIV/AIDS prevention; and
  WHEREAS, As a vital part of its preparedness efforts,  the  American
Red  Cross provides approximately half of the nation's blood supply and,
through the New York-Penn Blood Services  Region,  provides  the  safest
blood products possible to those in need throughout New York State; and
  WHEREAS,  The  American  Red  Cross continues to provide comfort and
support to our military families and, working with the International Red
Cross, collects and  distributes  funds  to  those  suffering  from  the
effects  of  civil  unrest  and natural disasters around the world; they
have also spearheaded a campaign to immunize  millions  of  children  in
developing countries who do not have access to life saving vaccines; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this  Legislative  Body  that when
organizations of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to  our
attention,  they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens
of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 2020, as American
Red Cross Month in the State of New York; and be it further
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the  State  of
New York.
