Today I am truly honored and privileged to have this opportunity to present a resolution honoring the American Red Cross, proclaiming this American Red Cross Month in the City of Philadelphia. As a member of City Year -- let me back up. As a founding member of City Year Philadelphia, one of my teams that I led in the Point Breeze community and also in parts of Southwest was the Red Cross team. We taught young people in schools disaster relief curriculums as well as a baby-sitting curriculum, and the American Red Cross cannot be prouder to have recruited one of the most outstanding public servants in the City of Philadelphia, the Honorable Renee Cardwell Hughes.
Let's give her a round of applause.
