Orange County Chapter American Red Cross Service Report 1946-1947

Created: December 21, 2015

The Orange County Chapter American Red Cross Service Report January 1946 - April 1947 reflects the dramatic shift from war activities to helping meet the needs of veterans and their families. The report includes list of Chapter Officers, Board of Directors, Executive Committee, Staff and the activities and services provided.

Community services were rendered to the following camps and hospitals: Station Hospital at OAB, Signal Hill, Base Operations AAFPGC, Pinecastle AA Field, Welch Convalescent Hospital, Banana River Naval Air Station, Jacksonville Naval Air Station Hospital, Lake City Veterans Hospital. Canteen service was given at: Pinecastle Army Air Base, Orlando Air Base Station Hospital, Pinecastle, Signal Hill, and Orlando Air Base Servicemen's Center. Nurses Aides served at: Orange Memorial Hospital, Floria Sanitorium, Crippled Children's Clinic and OAB Station Hospital.

It is of interest that under "Canteen Corps" activities for the period (page 14) is a brief item: "Canteen canned food for Volos, Greece." It is little known or remembered that the people of Orlando came together after World War II and collected food to save the starving people of Volos, Greece.
