Loyola Red Cross Club Geared Up for Getting Students Prepared!

The Loyola University Red Cross Club is only a year old but it is one of the most active student organizations on Loyola’s campus. From holding Karaoke Fundraisers to aid people who have been displaced from their homes during the California Wildfires, to distributing HIV/AIDS awareness information on campus, these Loyola students are passionate about fulfilling the mission of the Red Cross.

Club members have the opportunity to health and safety training such as CPR/First Aid, Disaster Preparedness, and Terrorism Preparedness. This school year, the students are looking to increase visibility and to prepare more Loyola students and the Rogers Park Community for emergencies through various services projects such visiting elementary schools to teach fire safety, hosting campus blood drives and CPR Trainings on campus and more. What a great way to start off National Preparedness Month!
