The Hillsborough Township Committee, in conjunction with the President of the United States of America, does hereby declare March as American Red Cross Month and encourages all Americans to support this organization and its noble humanitarian mission.
The American Red Cross has touched many lives in Hillsborough, as well as across the country and around the world.
American Red Cross Month is a special time to recognize our everyday heroes, and thank those who contribute to the mission of the Red Cross, whether through time, money or blood. We invite others to support the Red Cross in helping people in need down the street, across the country and around the world.
In 2018 the American Red Cross experienced a record-breaking year of challenging domestic and international response efforts. The American Red Cross provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families, training in CPR, aquatics safety, first aid to millions and collects about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply.
In Hillsborough, the Red Cross works tirelessly through its employees and many volunteers to support the Township when disaster strikes, when someone needs life-saving blood or the comfort of a helping hand.
