Student Volunteers Are Ready

Saturday, October 24th a group of Loyola University students became part of our Red Cross Reserve Corps. They completed a day of training in basic Mass Care which highlights s
heltering, feeding and bulk distribution.

The objective of this training is to have students on reserve to volunteer if a large scale disaster happens in the Chicagoland area.

Historically, college students have been among the first group of people who step up to help during a disaster.

The Red Cross Reserve Corps program ensures that we have trained and committed volunteers on hand when we need them.
All of the students who participated in the training were very enthusiastic about learning how they can be prepared to aid in disaster response.
