Our partnership with the American Red Cross is our newest endeavor.  In 2015, we joined the American Red Cross’ East LA Coalition to educate and bring programs on disaster preparedness to the East Los Angeles Community.

Long-time member and retired Red Cross employee, Rudy Salinas, is the club’s liason to the American Red Cross.

To date, along with students from the Garfield Interact Club, we have installed smoke alarms in homes that were without any;  we brought the Pillow Case Project to Fourth Street Elementary, to show kids what they need to do to be ready for a disaster; and we supported CPR training and other education.
