Earlier this month Ackerman Mayor Dick Cain signed a proclamation declaring March 2014 as American Red Cross Month.
“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,” states part of the proclamation.
American Red Cross heroes are on the front lines every day. They volunteer their time, give blood, take life-saving courses and provide financial donations to help those in need.
