Students Help the American Red Cross Month
By Princesa Zavaleta
American Red Cross Month is a month where we recognize the nation’s heroes who give of themselves in some way to help their community.
American Red Cross Month means different things to students.
For example, Melina Cervantes, a freshmen from the Tech & Media magnet, said, “To me American Red Cross Month is a month where we celebrate an organization that comes together to help out people who have gone through disasters or are in special need.”
Cervantes explains how she can help to inform others about the American Red Cross. “We can go around doing fundraisers and help spread further knowledge on how others may help.”
Jareny Garcia, a junior in the Visual and Performing Arts, said, “Well, American Red Cross Month to me identifies itself as a very helpful organization that is dedicated to serve anyone that requires any category of their services.” Garcia hopes to join be part of the organization later on. “In the future, I want go ahead and join rescue teams that are part of the Red Cross Organization and help the world when they suffer any kind of natural disasters.”
Another example would be Daniela Garcia, a senior from Visual and Performing Arts, said, “To me American Red Cross Month is the month where people working with that organization are able to reach their goals quicker to prepare for emergencies or disasters.
Garcia plans on helping the organization in the future. “Because of American Red Cross Month to spread awareness, I can start with donating blood, or volunteering to share my experience to others.”
