ONE OUT OF EVERY SEVEN UNITS OF BLOOD WE RECEIVE IS DONATED BY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.
“Project Lifesaver” is Blood Assurance’s outreach program into area schools. We have implemented this program in over 90 high schools and colleges. This program promotes education regarding the importance of donating blood. In addition, Project Lifesaver enables students and faculty to donate blood and save lives, while inspiring a sense of goodwill and sharing among those involved.
Blood Assurance recognizes and rewards local high schools for their tremendous efforts in saving lives in our communities through Project Lifesaver.
Area high schools have hosted hundreds of blood drives contributing thousands of units of blood for the healthcare facilities Blood Assurance serves.
Cord of Courage is a program designed to recognize these student's lifesaving efforts. Students in “Project Lifesaver” participating schools who complete a required number of donations before they graduate receive a special cord to wear at their graduation ceremony and may be able to receive a special edition cord if they go above and beyond.
