Celebrating American Red Cross Month

March is American Red Cross month. In honor of one of the nation’s leading humanitarian organizations the Allen School of Health Sciences would like to thank them for their efforts. The Red Cross has been a fixture in communities throughout the nation and even in various parts of the world for numerous years. Although the organization is known for quite a few philanthropic works. Their mission is simple but impactful, “The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.”

According to the American Red Cross, volunteers, employees and supporters of the Red Cross focus on five critical concerns:  

– People affected by disasters in America

– Support for members of the military and their families

– Blood collection, processing and distribution

– Health and safety education and training

– International relief and development

At the Allen School of Health Science we pride ourselves on giving back to the community. We have demonstrated this through our Institution for HOPE (Helping Other People Endure) Campaign which strongly encourages students and their families to get involved. In efforts to make a change and difference in your local area the Allen School of Health Sciences challenges you to volunteer!
