What We Do!
Welcome to the Cornell American Red Cross! Our organization was founded in 2018 to follow the core principles of the American Red Cross. We help host blood drives and service events in the Ithaca area. In addition to our awesome volunteer work, we also host a variety of professional and social events throughout the semester, such as CPR training and movie nights!
Currently, our nation is facing the lowest blood shortage in over a decade and we are working to raise awareness and encourage those who are able, to donate blood.
We are facing the biggest blood shortage in decades.
YOU can HELP!
Since the start of our organization, we have also expanded our roles and responsibilities. We have hosted multiple panels, even working with staff from Cornell Weill Medicine, to educate students on the importance of vaccines. Moreover, we host service project teams to encourage our members to volunteer and work towards a specific cause.
