Pint-Sized Hero and Future Blood Donor Program

The American Red Cross invites your school to participate in the Pint-Size Hero and Future Blood Donor programs which encourage elementary and middle school students to get involved with saving lives!

These programs are designed for students who are too young to donate blood themselves to learn about blood, the importance of blood donation and the beginning steps of organizing a blood drive. Through the Pint-Size Hero program, elementary and middle school students invite eligible blood donors to give a “pint” of blood at their school-sponsored blood drive, which helps to ensure our communities maintain a reliable blood inventory.

The Pint-Size Hero Program is available for elementary schools who want to host a Red Cross blood drive during the school year. The Future Blood Donor program aims to do the same for middle schools. Contact us today at 1-800-RED-CROSS (733-2767) to learn more about these great programs!
