HALFMOON – The American Red Cross has named state Sen. Daphne Jordan, R,C,I-Halfmoon,  “2022 State Legislator of the Year.”

The award recognized Jordan’s “unwavering support of the vital mission of the American Red Cross to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies,” a news statement read.

March is Red Cross Month, and Jordan was saluted for standing shoulder to shoulder with the agency this year and throughout her tenure in the New York State Senate.

She took part in a virtual recognition ceremony Friday hosted by the American Red Cross, and Jordan was the only state legislator recognized for the entirety of New York State’s Eastern Region.

“I’m proud to have a strong, productive partnership with such an impactful organization that turns compassion into action by assisting people all over the world in the face of disaster,” Jordan said. “Because of hardworking volunteers and generous donors, the American Red Cross can provide care, shelter, and hope to people who may be facing the biggest crisis of their lives. I look forward to our continued partnership in even more community events in April, May, and beyond.”

Jordan first participated as a doorstep educator with the American Red Cross in a “Sound the Alarm” event that provides fire safety education to a neighborhood where there has been devastation by fire.

In 2021, she sponsored successful, fully attended community blood drives in Hudson, Saratoga Springs, and Poestenkill.

She will partner with the American Red Cross in sponsoring additional community blood drive, including in Troy on May 23, Saratoga Springs on May 26, and she will sponsor an emergency preparedness seminar in Clifton Park on April 28.
