March is Red Cross Month

2/27/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Lake Conroe, Magnolia & Cleveland is proud to have a Corporate Sponsorship with the American Red Cross

Founded in 1881, the American Red Cross is a charitable organization that relies on donations and volunteers to carry out their mission.  Whether it is a disaster relief, blood donations, military family support, or training and certification in CPR, life guarding, first aid and more the Red Cross is committed to helping those who need it most.  The American Red Cross is part of the Global Red Cross Network, the world’s largest volunteer network founded in 187 countries, according to redcross.org.

 Every year, March is declared Red Cross Month by the President of the United States.  The American Red Cross celebrates by honoring the “every day heroes” who support and carry out the mission of the Red Cross by donating, giving blood, taking a class or volunteering. 

 SERVPRO ® began a partnership with the American Red Cross in 2013, and became an official Disaster Responder partner in 2016.  The Disaster Responder program provides families and individuals immediate support, comfort and assistance when a disaster, such as a house fire, happens to them.  Disaster Responders also help communities prepare for disasters ahead of time by participating in preparedness activities such as the Smoke Alarm Installation Campaign.
