Virtual General Meetings
General meetings will be held every Monday of Fall 2020 Quarter at 8 p.m. at https://uci.zoom.us/j/99394806965
To get points towards Active Membership, you will need to attend our meetings:
We will be using the list of members present in the call to give points for each week's General Meeting
Your username on the Zoom call must include your first and last name as they appear on the points sheet, or you will not be getting points for attending that week's General Meeting
All Social Aspects Will Be Through Discord
We will be using a Discord server to help us all stay connected.
This server will be used to
Keep in close connection with our families for the quarter
Play Jackbox and other online games
Host some of our icebreakers
Hold our online Socials
If you're interested, please join our Discord server at https://tinyurl.com/JoinRCCDiscord!
Red Cross Club at UCI Discord BOT
In addition to using Discord as a means to help us stay connected, we have created a BOT for the server that provides helpful commands!
Some examples of commands are:
!zoom (Provides link to General Member Meetings)
!membership (Provides link to more information on membership within RCC)
!family_points (Provides link to page where you can access the Google Sheets for your family)
New Active Membership Requirements
Active membership will be tracked through Google Docs this quarter.
Each Google Doc will hold all of the necessary screenshots and descriptions to help us keep track of your points
You will send us one email with a link to your Google Doc rather than sending out multiple emails throughout the quarter
Your points will be updated on the website under your family's name, as done in Fall and Winter Quarter
To get started, visit https://tinyurl.com/RCC-AMDoc-2020 and follow the directions listed in the template.
Active membership requirements have also changed for this quarter. Please visit the Membership page for the new requirements.
COMMUNITY SERVICE EVENTS
Alternatives to In-Person Service Events
After careful consideration, we found that it would be irresponsible for our organization to put ourselves and the organizations we volunteer for at risk through the work of our community service events.
This quarter, we offer:
Remote service events held on certain weekends
Signed Petitions alternative to replace 1 service event
Active Membership Requirement: 3 Online/At-Home Service Events or 2 Online/At-Home Service Events + 5 Signed Petitions
Please visit Events page for more information.
New Active Membership Requirement: Freerice
We will be requiring each Active Member to use the FREE trivia platform https://freerice.com/ to donate 6,000 grains of rice to the World Food Programme.
Every correct question answered donates 5 grains of rice to families in need (a change was made to how many grains were donated per question on the Freerice website).
Please visit the Fundraising page for more information.
CORAZON DE VIDA
Corazon de Vida Update (2020-2021)
As of 9/15/2020, we are currently tentatively planning for a CDV trip on Saturday, May 8, 2021. Currently, there are no trips or visitations allowed to the CDV orphanages for everyone's safety. Should travel restrictions lift and daily life return to "normal," we will be able to continue with this trip (keep in mind that this is Mother's Day weekend).
