The clubs on Auburn’s campus are varied and there is something for everyone. Auburn wants every student to be involved in some on-campus organization that helps him or her give back to the community.

Auburn’s American Red Cross Club is affiliated with the American Red Cross, East Alabama Chapter, which is located in Opelika. Auburn American Red Cross Club was developed in 2007 to allow students an opportunity to get involved with other Red Cross programs and services.

The Auburn American Red Cross club meets on a Monday night of each month in the Student Center at 6 p.m.

They are charted by the Auburn SGA.

Dues for the club are $35 a year. These dues include access to CPR and disaster response training along with refreshments for each meeting and t-shirts that will be provided once a year.

The September meeting was a seminar by Chance Corbett, who gave a presentation on what to do
in the event that a shooting takes place on campus. They also attended disaster training and had members volunteer at the Be Ready Alabama Preparedness Fair.

The next meeting will be Oct. 15, 2012, which will host a CPR training class by Joe Smith.
At the end of the one-hour class, participants will be CPR certified. They ask that you RSVP and the cost is $29. This is open not only to club members or Auburn students, but to the entire community. To reserve your spot contact Gail Smith at gss0006@auburn.edu.

Coming up later in October,
they will be partnering with Zoe’s
Kitchen to benefit Heroes’ for the American Red Cross. You can print the flier at https://www.facebook.com/events/517458368282302/and take it with you to Zoe’s on Oct. 30, 2012 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Zoe’s will donate 15 percent of all sales to the American Red Cross.

The Auburn Red Cross Club will be a large supporter in the Beat Bama Food Drive that will be going on Oct. 8 until Nov. 16. Along with the food drive, they will be volunteering with many blood drives in the community.

“There is always a place to be involved,” said Moriah Spivey, Public Relations Coordinator.

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, a parent or alumni, or visiting Auburn with dreams of being a student, think about being involved in the Auburn American Red Cross Club where you can give back to your community as well as learn how to be proactive in disaster situations.

So many times in the fire and ems field, we see the outreach that the American Red Cross provides to those in need.  Keep up the great work!
