What types of donations does the American red Cross accept?

So my class is doing a "giving back to the community" project. My class decided that we would help the American Red Cross Foundation. I have the job to research wht types of donations we can make. I have been researching but most all i can find is blood and ecasue we are 7th and 8th graders im not sure we can or would want to do that o.O. Obviously they accept money but what other kinds of things could we do?

Any info helps! Thanks (:
