American Red Cross Club
The American Red Cross Club at Texas State is looking for new members to join for the upcoming year. If you want to get involved on and off
campus this is the perfect way! The American Red Cross Club at Texas State works with the American Red Cross of Central Texas to coordinate
events on the Texas State campus and San Marcos community. The goal of this organization is to meet new people to build career skills and get
practical experience to put on their resumes, and feel more connected to the community and university.
The American Red Cross Club at Texas State is a smaller organization, unlike many of the organizations on campus, which gives members a
sense of belonging. We feel strongly that all of our members should get to know each other on more of a personal level to make being a member a
rewarding experience, so we hold socials throughout the year so this can happen. A few of the events that are planned for the upcoming semester
are blood drives, care packages for the troops, disaster classes, fire safety and prevention presentations, food drives, Measles initiative, Veteran’s
Day celebration and many more.
If you are interested in joining or want more information on the American Red Cross Club at Texas State send us an e-mail at ARCCatTxState@
hotmail.com or join us on Facebook at American Red Cross Club of Texas State. Also, feel free to just come to our meetings which will be held
bi-weekly starting Tuesday, September 14 in LBJ 4-1.6 at 5:00pm.
