Red Cross Clubs

Red Cross Clubs are a great way for youth to get involved. Each club designs their own fundraisers and community service events. Through support from their local Red Cross Chapter, Red Cross Clubs foster volunteerism and service within the school and community. Red Cross Clubs allow youth to earn community service hours and gain leadership experience.
