Red Cross Presentation

Posted By on January 15, 2020

Each year, the Canadian Red Cross helps over 100,000 people across the country. The Canadian Red Cross in New Brunswick offers an extensive network of programs and services that actively reach out and serve local communities throughout the province.

The Kinsmen Club of Miramichi were happy to welcome Elizabeth Hendrick and Derrick from the Northumberland/Kent County Red Cross last week. The team visited the Club to talk to our members about the community services offered by the Red Cross, their emergency responses, as well as express the need for more vounteers. Currently the local Red Cross has 9 volunteers, but they would like to see that double, up to 18, by the summer.

Becoming a volunteer is a great way to stay active, apply skills, meet new people and contribute to your community while making a difference in someone’s life and gaining new experiences! For more information, please visit the link below.

A big thank you to Elizabeth and Derrick for coming out to speak and educate the club on what the Red Cross does and doesn’t do (ie. Blood Donations)
