OUR STORY

Since 2009, American Red Cross Club at UCI (RCC) has striven to improve the lives of those in Southern California and around the world. Through our four main principles of service, leadership, fellowship, and compassion, we empower our members to follow our motto of "Community at Your Service."

MARCH MEMBER SPOTLIGHTS

Kelsy is a fourth year Psychology Major, and is a member of Froot Loops family. Here are a few words she shared about herself and her RCC experience:
“I joined the American Red Cross Club at UCI because I wanted to join a wholesome club that gave me fun volunteer opportunities and helped me make new friends.

I really like meeting new people in the club and bonding with them while helping a greater cause.

My favorite RCC volunteering event so far is the squirrel watch event because we played a lot of throwback music and laughed to funny pictures of squirrels.

A fun fact about me: I can do a head stand.”
Kirsten is a 1st-year Biological Sciences Major, and is a member of Cinnamon Toast Crunch family. Here are a few words she shared about herself and her RCC experience:

“I heard about the American Red Cross Club from my Bio Sci 2A TA and I was interested by the club’s volunteering, service goals as well as building a sense of community with the UCI community.

I enjoy the fun interactions with members while contributing to a global cause. Zoom University has made it difficult to make friends and interact with other UCI students, but volunteering provides a safe and productive space to share time with others.

My favorite event so far was the Snapshot Grumetti because I learned how to identify tons of African animals and shared my animal findings with friends!

In my spare time, I enjoy painting and playing tennis. These activities give me a creative and stress relieving outlets that keep me at my best.”
Kaitlyn is a 1st-year Biological Sciences Major, and is a member of Rice Krispies family. Here are a few words she shared about herself and her RCC experience:

“I was a part of ARC in high school! So I wanted to continue my participation onto UCI, despite the pandemic and lots of schedule conflicts.

I enjoy giving back to my community. What I admire about Red Cross is that they demonstrate selfless contribution, hosting events that give acts and services of kindness. It's gratifying to be a part of a warm community.

The seagull/bird watch: it was really chill and a relaxing event to be a part of. Also the members there were playing a lot of funny music.

One of the reasons that pushed me to be a part of ARC was seeing a man give CPR to a stranger at a festival. That was so cool, it felt like a movie, and it motivated me to get my own license (which is expiring in a few months :') ) Another fact about me is that I have a cat. ”
Sydney is a 1st-year Undeclared member of Cap’n Crunch family. Here are a few words she shared about herself and her RCC experience:

“I decided to join the American Red Cross club because I thought it would be a great way to meet new people who also love to help others and their community.

What I enjoy most about volunteering is the connections that you make while helping your community. Whether you get to know the people you're volunteering with or the people who you are there to lend a helping hand to.

My favorite RCC volunteering event so far has been the Western Shield Camera Watch because it was super cool to see different kinds of Australian animals! It was also a super fun seeing all the jock kangaroos and the group talking about losing in fights against them.

In my spare time I love to go hiking and getting to be in nature!”
