Young Humanitarians Making a Difference Through Red Cross Clubs

The Allen High School Red Cross Eagles
raise funds for disaster relief at their games.

Did you know there's a great way for students to support the Red Cross and make a difference in their community?

Red Cross Clubs, like the one at Allen High School, help the Red Cross by preparing their community for disasters, hosting blood drives, supporting military members and participating in service projects. The Allen High School Red Cross Eagles did an awesome job raising funds for disaster relief at their high school games.

Starting a Red Cross Club at your elementary school, middle school, high school or college is easy. We have toolkits and checklists to help you get started, and the Red Cross Volunteer Services team is here to support you. Visit to learn how to get started.

Thank you to all the young humanitarians who are giving their time through Red Cross Clubs! Your generosity and compassion is inspiring!
