The UC Davis Red Cross Club is a student organization. The organization is also an American Red Cross Davis Chapter associated with the Yolo County Red Cross. We are a health care based community service group that provides various volunteer activities, specializing in disaster preparedness, CPR First Aid training, and other various health care service projects!
