Presenta Plaque Recognizes Clara Barton

by | Mar 23, 2012 | 0 comments

In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed the first Red Cross Month in support of Red Cross fundraising efforts, and since that time, every president has designated March as Red Cross Month. The American Red Cross is full of support from volunteers who are committed to their communities by responding to emergencies. They provide relief to victims of natural or man-made disasters.

In honor of Red Cross Month, Presenta Plaque would like to recognize Clara Barton. She is one of the most honored women in American history for being a true pioneer as well as an outstanding humanitarian. Barton had a deep understanding of the needs of individuals in distress and knew how to provide help to them. She had very intense devotion in serving others. It was in 1881 that Clara founded the American Red Cross and led it for the next 23 years. Thank you Clara for everything you have done and for starting the Red Cross!
