The number of lives you can save.
Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. Life can change in a moment and any of us could be in need of a blood transfusion for an emergency, natural disaster or pandemic.
OneBlood offers high schools an innovative opportunity to improve student health, instill community spirit and receive additional educational program assistance and scholarship funding – all by hosting blood drives throughout the school year!
Hosting a Blood Drive is as Easy as 1, 2, 3
1. Meet with your OneBlood representative to schedule the drive, establish realistic goals and develop a recruitment plan. Obtain support from your school administration, staff and club advisors.
2. Recruit members of your team to help along the way. Have your team recruit donors one-on-one and schedule them for specific media.
3. Spread the word about your blood drive through a variety of communication channels. Get creative! Some ideas include school announcements, website, internal communications, posters and social media.
Benefits of Donating Blood
Each donor gets a wellness checkup including COVID-19 antibody test, blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening!
OneBlood will provide $20 toward the Education Assistance and Scholarship Program for every unit of blood collected at school blood drives
Scholarship payments and awards will be issued during the annual high school luncheon in recognition of your dedication to saving lives
