Red Cross Club, a new club at Glen Allen High School, focuses on giving blood, helping victims of disasters, and educating people about emergency preparedness and fire prevention. The current officers for the 2018-2019 school year are: Mia Varghese, Nancy Hoang, Anna Liu, and Momina Raja.
This club has over 20 active members and holds meetings on the third Friday of every month in the lecture hall. Students in the club can earn volunteer hours towards graduation for simply attending the meetings! In November of 2018, Jon Reinmuth, a Henrico County Firefighter, came to speak to the club about fire safety and how to prevent fires in homes. The club learned about the types of fires and how to properly put out fire. In January of 2019, the club made fire safety posters to inform students about the likelihood of kitchen and bedroom fires. In February of 2019, the club donated supplies such as Vaseline, socks, and coffee supplies to the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center, a veteran’s hospital.
