The Red Cross national blood supply has fallen by about 25% since early August. Right now, blood product distributions to hospitals are outpacing the number of blood donations coming in. We need your help - schedule a blood donation today.
Sign up to host a blood drive while school is out of session and join the impressive group of youth across the nation who are helping save lives with the American Red Cross! You could earn leadership skills, volunteer hours, a gift card and be entered to win a scholarship.
The scholarship drawing and gift card amount will be based on the number of pints collected at your blood drive.*
“I am very grateful for this opportunity because not only was I able to help others through hosting this blood drive, I was also able to learn even more about the importance of donating blood and developed leadership and communication skills in the process.”
“If you have the time and capability to host a blood drive, do it. The feeling you get when you get the results back and see the numbers of lives that could be saved due to your help is indescribable. Once you feel that, you'll want to be able to do whatever you can to feel that way again.”
“The experience of hosting a blood drive is something like none other. It is rewarding from the beginning knowing that you are positively serving and doing good to your community.”
“Hosting a blood drive is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had the opportunity to participate in. When you host a blood drive you are saving lives, and what can be more rewarding than that!”
“The Leaders Save Lives program has been one of the most impactful high school experiences that I have had.”
“Coordinating a blood drive and volunteering at other blood drives allowed me to interact with fellow students supporting my community.”
