Red Cross volunteers are on the front lines of recovery, providing emergency shelter to families impacted by devastating floods, tornadoes, fires, and other disasters; donating lifesaving blood to meet the rising demand of hospital patients; supporting our Nation’s service members, veterans, and their families; and providing medical care and essential resources to combat diseases worldwide. During American Red Cross Month, Americans who can are encouraged to answer the call to donate blood and serve communities in need. You are encouraged to learn more about eligibility and the steps involved to donating blood.

                Proclamation 10342 of February 28, 2022

                
American Red Cross Month, 2022

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our history, Americans have always stepped 
                up for each other in moments of crisis. This spirit is 
                woven into the fabric of our Nation, and for more than 
                140 years it has been exemplified by devoted employees, 
                volunteers, and supporters of the American Red Cross. 
                This month, we honor the American Red Cross and the 
                selfless Americans who serve our communities in need 
                across our country and around the world.

                Since its founding in 1881 by Clara Barton, a nurse and 
                educator, the American Red Cross has carried out its 
                noble mission of preventing and easing human suffering. 
                Today, in big cities and small towns across the 
                country, hundreds of thousands of Red Cross workers--
                more than 90 percent of whom are volunteers--continue 
                to carry out that mission by selflessly giving blood, 
                making donations, and teaching first aid in local 
                communities.

                Support from the American Red Cross has provided hope 
                to people in their darkest hours--in the face of armed 
                conflict, climate-related disasters, and the COVID-19 
                pandemic. Red Cross volunteers are on the front lines 
                of recovery, providing emergency shelter to families 
                impacted by devastating floods, tornadoes, fires, and 
                other disasters; donating lifesaving blood to meet the 
                rising demand of hospital patients; supporting our 
                Nation's service members, veterans, and their families; 
                and providing medical care and essential resources to 
                combat diseases worldwide.

                During American Red Cross Month, Americans who can are 
                encouraged to answer the call to donate blood and serve 
                communities in need. You are encouraged to learn more 
                about eligibility and the steps involved to donating 
                blood. Let us renew our commitment to Clara Barton's 
                timeless ideal of caring for one another in times of 
                hardship and uncertainty. Let us take part in this 
                proud tradition of lending a helping hand to those in 
                need. Let us live up to the duty of care we owe each 
                other through acts of compassion every day.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of 
                the United States of America and Honorary Chair of the 
                American Red Cross, by virtue of the authority vested 
                in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim March 2022 as American Red 
                Cross Month. I encourage all Americans to observe this 
                month with appropriate programs, ceremonies and 
                activities, and by supporting the work of service and 
                relief organizations.
