Students at William Jewell College created an American Red Cross Campus Club, the first of its kind in Missouri, to promote community preparedness and safety.

Established in 2012, the American Red Cross Campus Club has worked under the umbrella organization, the Nonprofit Leadership Association, to help equip the campus and community with necessary tools and information to be prepared for a disaster.

In April, the American Red Cross club hosted Cause for Alarm, distributing smoke detectors, new batteries and safety packets to 170 homes in Liberty near campus. Last fall the club also hosted a blood drive.

On May 3, the club commemorated the 10-year anniversary of a tornado that caused $7.4 million in damage to the college. Speakers included Matt Meyer, CEO of the Red Cross of Greater Kansas City, and Kevin Shaffstall, director of the Pryor Center for Leadership Development. The following day, students were invited to a free preparedness training course to become first responders in natural disasters such as tornados, earthquakes and floods.

On May 14, the campus club will partner with Tucker Leadership Lab of William Jewell College to benefit the American Red Cross of Greater Kansas City. The Tuckered Out for Tucker event will raise awareness about the sleeping arrangements the American Red Cross provides for disaster victims and volunteers through purchasing a “nap” in hammocks on the Lab’s Odyssey high challenge course. Walk-ups are welcome; priority napping spots will be given to participants preregistered through www.facebook.com/TuckerLeadership.
