Senator Burr Sponsors “National Child Awareness Month”
WASHINGTON, D.C. -U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) today announced that the United States Senate unanimously passed Senate Resolution 598, designating September 2010 as "National Child Awareness Month."
The month of September is expressly marked to promote awareness of charities and children and youth-serving organizations throughout the United States, and to honor their contributions to the health and well-being of our country's children. September is traditionally back-to-school month, a time when families focus on preparing children for the coming school year. It is also fitting that we take time during this month to reflect on the needs of children and youth.
The House counterpart, H.R. 1219, was passed by unanimous vote on July 19, 2010.
