Hoxworth Blood Center's High School Blood Program offers students an excellent opportunity to learn firsthand how they can contribute to their community by making a difference in the lives of people around them. Students who participate in organizing blood drives learn valuable skills in leadership, community service, communication, project management, planning, setting and reaching goals and teamwork.
Did you know that more than 13 percent of our total yearly blood collections come from high school blood drives? In fact, during the last school year, there were approximately 12,000 donors at high school blood drives. Since one donation can save up to three lives, about 36,000 tri-state patients were helped by students in just one year.
