The San Pedro Red Cross spearheaded a successful blood drive this past weekend on Ambergris Caye and with various activities on hand and planned for the future, the organization is showing signs of momentum in their objectives.
This week the San Pedro Red Cross highlights the fact that many island businesses and individuals have stepped up to purchase their First Aid Kits and making Ambergris Caye just a little safer. Businesses taking the initiative include: Caribbean Villas, Aimee Fearneyhough Sunrise Realty, Caye Coffee, San Pedro Sailing Club, Ambergris Seaside Real Estate, Xanadu Resort, Josh Beuttner, Licks Beachside Cafe, El Divino and Banana Beach Resort. The Red Cross will have some deluxe first aid kits available for sale to any interested party.

The Red Cross also invites the public for a community meeting that will take place on Thursday, November 20, at 6:00p.m. at El Divino Restaurant. The purpose of the meeting is to let the community know what the organization has been doing and where it is heading.
The group will also be signing up Active Volunteers and members. The volunteer committees they are looking to fill are for health, disaster preparation, fundraising, volunteer/membership and media committees. Membership is a great option for people who support what we are doing and want to help but do not want to be a steady volunteer. This can be done with a $100 annual contribution.
