Centre Communities Chapter of the American Red Cross

The Centre Communities Chapter, which is part of the 22-county Central Pennsylvania Region, serves more than 180, 000 residents in Centre and eastern Clearfield Counties. 25% of the chapter population consists of over 45, 000 college students attending the University Park Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. The Penn State Student Red Cross Club is the HUB Club for the Mid-Atlantic Division, providing support for other collegiate clubs in the division.

Our Mission:

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

We are guided by seven fundamental principles: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

Our Services:

The Red Cross helps families to meet their immediate disaster caused needs, assists members of our armed forces and their families through emergency communication and other services, teaches lifesaving CPR and First Aid skills, and collects vitally needed blood . All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.

The Central Pennsylvania Region provides relief to the victims of more than 459 disasters each year, including more than 30 in Centre and eastern Clearfield counties.

The American Red Cross is not a government agency. It relies on the generosity of the people of Central Pennsylvania to fulfill its mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies.
