During March — which the president of the U.S. has proclaimed as American Red Cross Month for more than 75 years — the Red Cross in Eastern South Dakota celebrates its volunteer heroes and asks people in South Dakota to be a hero too by donating on Red Cross Giving Day (March 25), becoming a volunteer, giving blood or learning skills that save lives. “Every day, families rely on Red Cross volunteers for urgent relief and hope during crises,” Patty Brooks, Executive Director of the Red Cross in Eastern South Dakota said. “We honor their service during Red Cross Month and ask you to join them to make a difference.” Volunteers represent more than 90 percent of the Red Cross workforce and help people every day — often after home fires, which represent most of the disasters that the Red Cross responds to every eight minutes in the U.S. In the past year, volunteers helped more than 1,200 people affected by home fires, floods, blizzards and tornadoes in South Dakota. HOW YOU CAN BE A HERO On March 25, Red Cross Giving Day, donate at redcross.org/givingday to #help1family who loses nearly everything to a disaster. Your gift can provide hope and urgent relief like food, shelter and other essentials. Donations are key to saving lives because they fund nearly 100 percent of Red Cross disaster relief activities. You can also visit redcross.org to make an appointment to donate blood or platelets, register for a class in lifesaving skills like CPR and First Aid, or become a volunteer for opportunities needed in your community, including: Disaster Action Team Member: When a disaster like a home fire displaces a family from their home, trained volunteers respond to ensure that they don’t face it alone. As part of a team, help local families by wrapping a blanket around their shoulders, addressing urgent their needs like food and a safe place to stay, and connecting them with recovery assistance. Home Fire Campaign Volunteer: Want to spend a rewarding day teaming with fellow volunteers to help local families in need? Install free smoke alarms and help residents create home fire escape plans through the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, which has saved hundreds of lives. Blood Donor Ambassador: Are you friendly and outgoing? Red Cross Blood Donor Ambassadors ensure that blood donors have a pleasant and fulfilling experience from the moment they arrive at a blood drive to the moment they leave. About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.

South Dakotans can help stop the spread of germs by washing hands often, covering coughs and sneezes, cleaning surfaces regularly, and staying home if you are sick.” To proactively protect and prepare South Dakota for coronavirus, Noem and SDDOH has: • Commissioned an agency taskforce for coordination and planning with partners and other state agencies; • Developed an action plan for information management, incident management, and monitoring for persons at risk of infection • Communicated regularly with healthcare providers across the state, especially as it relates to coordinating with the CDC; • Developed capacity at the State Public Health Laboratory to test for virus that causes COVID-19; and • Launched a COVID-19 website to keep South Dakotans up-to-date on current situations. Earlier this week, Noem joined Vice President Mike Pence and governors from across the nation for a discussion on the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force. Noem also visited the State Health Lab and spoke with the state team charged with preparing for the virus. To date, there are no cases of COVID-19 in South Dakota.
