The American Red Cross has developed fun activity guides for your group to use to help spread the word about the Red Cross and its mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Activity guides can be used by Red Cross Clubs, youth groups, or classes who want to organize around Red Cross mission-related activities.
These activity guides will help you lead Red Cross activities. No matter what activity you choose, get in touch with your local Red Cross chapter or Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) station. The Red Cross can provide you with helpful resources and guidelines to make your activity a success!
