UPRCY @ 25: Bringing it Back to the Decade that Started it All

To celebrate our 25 years of service, the UP Red Cross Youth is throwing a month-long birthday bash! Throughout September, we will have a series of events to showcase the various advocacies our organization has been championing for the last 25 years.

In line with the celebration, UP RCY will hold the following events:
