BLOOD DRIVE CEREMONY
OneBlood of South Florida celebrates with our students and staff our life saving blood program. At this ceremony, work locations are awarded plaques and trophies for the amount of pints collected, percentage of participation, most improved location, and most dedicated student and faculty coordinator.
Throughout the school year, OneBlood held blood drives at Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Due to the generosity of students, faculty and parents, many lives are touched by these life-saving donations.
This collaboration allows students to give back to their community in a personal and profound way. In addition:
Each student receives a wellness checkup, including blood pressure, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening. Students are able to use their online OneBlood account to track their results over time and view any trends with their numbers.
Students on the blood drive committee learn project management skills.
Students learn the importance of social responsibility and helping others in need.
Thanks to all of you who stepped in and gave of yourselves in order to save lives. Our blood drive program continues to be #1 in the state of Florida.
