Red Cross

Grant Recipient 2022

The generous grant from the Virts Miller Foundation has been pivotal in supporting the flourishing network of 12 Red Cross Youth Clubs across Loudoun County. These clubs, which are initiated and managed by students, provide over 500 young individuals with significant volunteer and leadership opportunities, all aligned with the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross.  

Each participating school organizes a minimum of three impactful activities throughout the academic year. These initiatives include organizing blood drives, conducting fundraisers, writing heartfelt letters to service members, and leading supply drives among other community service projects. Through these endeavors, the students not only contribute meaningfully to their community but also acquire valuable life skills such as leadership, organization, and empathy.  

We are immensely grateful to the Virts Miller Foundation for their support, which has been essential in nurturing the next generation of community leaders and philanthropists. Your backing enables these dedicated students to continue their admirable efforts in giving back to the community and upholding the core values of the Red Cross. We look forward to the continued growth and success of these youth clubs, further fostering a spirit of service and resilience in our community.
