The Greensboro chapter of the American Red Cross

About the Red Cross

The Guilford Battle Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) in Greensboro, NC, are credited with taking the first steps towards the creation of the Greensboro, NC, Chapter of the American Red Cross. The D.A.R. formed a committee with members from the Daughters of the Confederacy, the Greensboro Woman’s Club, and the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) in order to organize the formation of the chapter. With help from this organization, and other individuals, the Greensboro, NC, Chapter of the American Red Cross was formed in 1917.
