Red Cross is one of Baruch’s oldest community service clubs. We are best known for leading the annual Breast Cancer walk in October, as well as the annual Thanksgiving Potluck in partnership with Cookies for Kids Cancer where we use our funds to purchase toys for the NYU Hospital Toy Drive. We also host the annual Blood Drive in direct association with the Red Cross organization. We have made it a new tradition to host an annual book drive, which calls for students to donate books they no longer need, so they could be sent to organizations that provide them to children who do not have access to such materials. There are no requirements to join the club, everyone is welcome! Please join this club, as we will help you fulfill the 20 hour community service requirement as well as give you a new outlook on serving our communities.
