The American Red Cross Club at UC Davis 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!
Our mission statement is, "The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers, will provide relief to victim if disaster and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies."
