Red Cross Clubs

Central New York - Red Cross Clubs

Red Cross Clubs are community or school-based service clubs that support the American Red Cross mission. Red Cross Clubs offer students or group members many opportunities to have new and diverse experiences, serve their communities, and gain leadership experience. Most importantly, clubs are encouraged to creatively and actively help meet the needs of their communities by implementing activities and programs that support fundraising for the Red Cross and its core services: Blood Services, Disaster Preparedness and Response, Service To Armed Forces, Health and Safety Services, and International Services.

Creative and fun activities are highlighted in step-by-step Activity Guides for College Students or Activity Guides for High School Students. Of course, your Club is always free to invent new ways of expressing the Red Cross mission by creating a unique Activity Guide of your own! If your unique activity was a big hit and you want to share it, pass it on to other clubs and to Julie Mucilli, Volunteer Specialist.

To join an existing club, contact the president of the club at your school. To start a Red Cross Club, contact Elizabeth Cinquino at or (585) 241-4484. To start your own Red Cross Club, check out the requirements here.

This is a list of all active American Red Cross clubs in the Western and Central New York Chapter. If your school doesn’t already have a club, you can start one!
