Crystal Green Memorial Scholarship
Blood Assurance is dedicated to serving the needs of each community in which we have the privilege of living and participating each and every day in giving the gift of life. This scholarship fund is dedicated to Crystal Green who was a valiant and loving young woman that set forth the example of kindness and care to all that she met.
Questions about the scholarship? Contact Bonnie Phillips to learn more.
Cord of Courage
Did you know more than 1 in 7 units of blood we receive are donated by high school students? We have a program designed to recognize these students’ lifesaving efforts called the Cord of Courage. Students in participating schools who complete a required number of donations before they graduate receive a special cord to wear at their graduation ceremony and may opt to receive a special edition cord if they go above and beyond.
For more information on the Cord of Courage, download our information sheet.
1/2 Pints 4 Life
1/2 Pints 4 Life is a program designed for elementary and middle school students to learn about, and help promote, blood donations. By encouraging their parents and teachers to donate blood at school blood drives, kids practice community involvement and learn early on the importance of donating blood for patients in need.
Interested in hosting a 1/2 Pints Blood Drive at your school? Contact Libby Phillips, Director of Donor Recruitment.
Blood Assurance recognizes and rewards our local high schools for their tremendous efforts in saving lives in our communities through Project Lifesaver, our high school drive program.
Originally launched as Project Lifeline, area high schools have hosted hundreds of blood drives contributing thousands of units of blood for the healthcare facilities we serve.
If your school would like to become a part of Project Lifesaver and host blood drives with Blood Assurance, please complete our blood drive interest form and a representative will get in touch.
