Something a “Bruin”: Students Help Red Cross Prepare on UCLA’s Second Volunteer Day

( American Red Cross ) --

Nearly 100 UCLA students volunteered at the American Red Cross Los Angeles Chapter on Sept 21, helping the Red Cross get ready for the next disaster. The effort was part of the 2nd annual UCLA Volunteer Day, the nation’s largest one-day service project for new university students.

For five hours, the students washed emergency vehicles, cleaned shelter cots, sterilized CPR manikins, and assembled 1,500 tote bags with first aid kits and disaster preparedness information. The students also painted numerous areas of the building’s façade.

The Red Cross is one of 22 sites in the Greater Los Angeles area where 6,000 incoming UCLA freshmen and transfer students volunteered to help non-profit agencies in the Greater Los Angeles community. Many staff, faculty, and alumni participated as site leaders and project captains, and members of the UCLA Red Cross Club helped coordinate the Red Cross activities.

“We are so grateful to have participated in UCLA Volunteer Day 2010. These students are providing a wonderful service by volunteering their time and talent to support local community organizations like the Red Cross. We hope they continue to volunteer in the future,” said Bee Kong, director of Volunteer Services.
